Kiting on a 2.5m kite in surf = far from average weak riding :kiff:

No you haven't and you didn't even watch the whole video. :roll: And although that was a vid of me testing a pole mount there was still decent riding and enough off the lips in the 30 minutes of riding I edited to make it that it shows I have very good skill and style.

I'm not gonna lie to Ya, i actually Did get stoned, to watch
your video.

You got Good balance , (but Ya Should with all the years you done this)!

However you aren't compressing your body, then extending to push
water. Basically, your Not Adding Any energy to your turns ; so
there's No water getting sprayed.

Your Not carving your turns ; just sliding the back of the board.

I'll reserve judgement, & let you go make another video, in proper
waves ; then decide if your a Goon-ball or not ,after watching your
next video. Maybe you do better in the Clean-stuff ?

There's a guy at Mohave, named John G ; he weighs maybe 170 or
so. On the 3ft chop in 30+ wind, he will do a series of turns that literally
makes the face of the wave Explode on each turn. He'll do that
after coming out of a 20' jump ; and land on the face of the wave.
It's Full compression and Full extension on Each turn ; he kites with Passion
and Ya see raw-animal in his eyes when he's doing it !!

You should be able to do the same thing as John ; but you didn't .

Not carving turns my ass. :nono:


IF you ever go out and kite in waves you might realize that different wind direction and waves have a big effect on riding style. Comparing a guy slashing white caps on a lake to actual wave riding makes no sense. Anyone can go at a wave turn the other direction and ride away but to make multiple turns on the wave takes skill.


Now where is your video or pics billie? Or what you have no videos or pics of you ripping on lake? :lol: Surely one of your many women has done some filming while watching her man!! Cant wait to see your massive skills and those decades of surf experience translated to kiteboarding! :lol:

wait a minute... your calling that white wash foam in your videos an actual WAVE ?... I think the waves you miss was a bit further out because all you ever do is muck around in the after effects of a wave boy!

A small wave is still a wave. If you had a clue about kiting and even kited in waves "LoneWolf" you'd know this.

Now its time for some of you keyboard kiters (NYkiter, mowaves, LoneWolf, Flyfish, SupaEZ/14toe, Billie, Bain, etc etc :lol: ..) to start posting some pics and vids if you want any credibility. I know most of you don't even kite in waves and the ones who do aren't really wave riding. :lol: :kiff:
