He's only 15, leave him alone! Once his balls have dropped and he has got laid he may be a little less uptight.

I knew I'd get a bunch of whiners crying about how backside is great and they know it all. Im amazed nobody called in the thought police to come delete this thread yet with the amount of butt hurt going on!

Yea esg. what we're really doing is keeping this dip sh!t occupied so that the guys at his local spot can enjoy time without his kindergarden mouth. would you really want him anywhere near you? Dont think so! so keep it up and keep him typing! take one for the team bro!

Ok, my turn...

Hey Bob, that board you ride looks 3 inches thick! Are you that LAME?!!!! Only KOOKS ride sh!t like that!



You didn't answer about your riding foil kites in the surf? hmmm. Why is that? Ashamed to admit it?

Trying to talk shit about my fish shows you don't know what your doing. Its a perfect kiteboard for small gutless waves. You aren't going to even be surfing waves on a short little thin board until they get head high and have enough power you will just be getting towed by a kite looking like a clown. When the surf is big, THEN is when you switch to a smaller board. But you would know this if you had any idea about wave kiting.

This thread would be great for the narcissism and self-aggrandizement forum.

guess switch frontside is the easy way out

but then going backside looking bad is even easier

given kite demographics this makes totally sense



Riding backside because you don't want to learn switch is the easy way. It looks like shit but you are technically wave riding and it is still enjoyable but not as much as riding frontside.


too lazy to learn switch but then instead of going backside down the line, i´m even lazier than that and chose to go front side up the line

technically i´m still wave riding. i think

and still within the demographics

That aint wave riding. That is getting pulled by the kite on the wave.
