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 .

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:


Hard to do that with no feet ; but now that i got your attention, read that part
about Jon G and tell me what i'm trying to say to Ya. I Ain't banging on your
cage, just trying to rattle it a Bit !!
Ya see, you kinda Need an EGO to be Reilly Fricken Good at something, (you gOt it) !!
You also got a Lot of balance ; & the Air was Good.

Dude, tune your ego down, and your turn your riding Up ; you really Could be Good !!

Anyway, while you were skating around on your board, i borrowed a buddies kite
and jumped off a hill. That Rush is why i turned down a Free sponsorship for
kite equipment , so i could do what I'm passionate about, (it ain't Kite boarding yet).
Hold-on ---
But think Will be in a few more seasons. Kite-boarding is Almost as fun as a HG, but
with 1/10 the risk.

Where's the kiting video or pic? Hang gliding and that shit is cool until you crash hard and destroy your body. Too much risk. Think I'll stick to kiting waves. :kiff:

Like most people though, I bet you've not had a camera around for the best stuff eh.



:nono: The only thing weak was the waves. Riding is solid. Of course I've ridden much bigger waves in better wind direction for down the line riding using smaller boards... But have you or anyone here ever ridden a 2.5 m kite in the surf? Doubt that's something anyone on kiteforum or probably anyone else in the world other than me can say.. :kiff:



Seriously Dude ; i've had Enough of Your Shit.

I got to # 4 in the World at ACRO on a HG. Ya wanna know Why i never
made it to # 1 ?

I ---- Never figured out HOW to turn down my EGO , and turn UP the Passion.

You , (son) haven't even made it TO the starting gate , so Ya can Run a race, (("Yet")) !!!

Anything Else to say ??

I don't know much about gliders other than its stupid dangerous but if you were unsuccessful at glider contests that's probably because either there were better flyers than you or like most contests it's all bullshit anyway. Ooh wow this guy stayed in the air longer than that guy and did a triple leg spread... About as lame as a surfing contest. Not worth beating yourself up over either way. Move on and :kiff: be happy you can even kite after those years of gliding and are still alive and not in a wheelchair.

Yes but the point of posting a video of yourself riding would be to substantiate your claims and show how much better you are than the pros, and how good your riding frontside of waves is... those things in the video aren't waves! We get better waves on the lake...

Whatever kite you were on doesn't factor in, either.

BM: asking for other people videos and having yours pulled is pretty uncool.

Lost your credit there!

And if your videos are available for public and someone posts it here, it is legit.
Won't delete it anymore.

But I saw you already blocked the one you had ;-)

BM is an aggravating little troll. He almost sucked me in to posting some photos. But why? I really dont need to prove to him that hes not a great wave rider or prove that I am better than him. The verdicts already in. And really who cares about frontside/backside? Is that what kitesurfing is about?

On the 2.5 kite video the wind is onshore.....
.... and you are just going back and forth without switching your feet..we all can do that EZ

I used to do that over 10 years ago on a 2.2m2 kite in the waves on a surfboard in high winds

On one tack you are going toeside right foot forward....frontside riding..obviously your are goofy

But on other tack you remain riding right foot forward heelside ..which equals..backside !!!

That is the problem right there about your claim...cause you don't switch

To be legit you would have had to switch your feet ....
......as soon as you changed tack...to left foot forward to go toeside again..with chest facing the wind

On onshore wind ....if your back is to the wind when riding...you are going backside + heelside

There was no foot switching to your "unnatural toeside side" in that video...so you are busted

:bye:

I would agree with that. Hardly any switching in the videos. Plus he restricted all of the other videos now. Guess hes learning.
