Echo, this thread is used to promote poorly researched negative information, propaganda, against the sport of kiteboarding. So, if you like and support kiting, I wouldn't add to it. No good will come from it least of all factual, well intended information.

I read the lead post and didn't notice the caveat to which you refer Rick...

and let's get real, there's always a pay off....

be it pussy, pride or position...

and as far as protecting kiting from blame, ? I see that as a stretch at best..

maybe look at my previous post here, and understand why my advice remains

that one should firmly be, anti promo, anti hype, anti stoke and finally anti sand swami .

you see, getting paid motivates , and we all know kiting is an e ticket, one that renders

the buyer 10 feet tall with a stiffy...

sooner or later yup, leave the innocent be..


and to the rest, rock out with your cock out, and when asked, 'is it safe?' say, there are a few bugs yet...maybe try windsurfing first.
