Why don't more kiters learn to ride switch?


Your first post is incomplete :lol:
You forgot .................Writing left handed looks like s**t
Why don't more left handers learn to write switch ?

How do you practice your switch wave riding ?
Do you alternate left hand right hand when wiping your backside s**t to become symmetrical ?

Are you so special....that you have 2 dominant eyes ? :rollgrin:




So glad I don't live on the shitty east coast like you. No wonder you don't get it. It takes real wind and waves to properly kite surf... not that light wind and little ankle slappers you ride out east. The most mediocre onshore wind wave riding day in WA still tops the best day on the east coast.


Explain then.... if my waves are soooooooooo bad where i kite...
.. why Kelly Slater who is 11 times World Champ was able to become sooooooooooo good....
....practicing right here in Cocoa Beach

Waiting for your s**tty answer :brainshit: :shit:

Please be careful of your status in the kite surf community...





And if you live in a frozen place with no waves like new yawk or the Midwest you definitely are not a real kite surfer. Same for the east coast. If you wanna kite waves move somewhere with the right conditions.

His sponsors probably rigged most of those contests he won. You are deluded. But he practiced as a small child on gutless waves sure... To a little kid an ankle slapped is a decent wave. If the waves are so good there why is he always flying off to places like Hawaii to surf real waves? All those miles he flys around to find good waves and he could just stay at home. Or does he just like to pollute the environment making unnecessary flights across the globe?

You need to ditch your foil kites first then worry about getting good. But you probably live in a no wind area anyway. I'm getting an east coast vibe from you.

How are you going to progress when the whole time you are worried about dropping your kite.

We have set up a web site to help you. Go to...

www.BM-KiteSurfStandardsAssociation.com

You will find all requirements to be a Kite Surfer...approved equipment, etc. Also, a Google Map is available that depicts all approved kite surf locations. Note that the only kite surf location on Hawaii is Waikiki. No locations in Indo, Austrailia, East Coast US. Do not get in waves at these locations.

We are accepting applications for Kite Surf Enforcers. These individuals will be set up at surf locations over the whole eath. We are there to help you not become banished in shame.

If you can't shake the "fun" issue, we have set up a hot line for you. There is therapy and drugss that we can help you with. The first step, though, is to admit that you are a "false fun" addict. We help because we care...
