Well then... if you don't have the skill to kiteboard past someone without running into them, thereby triggering a lawsuit, even if they find it fun to mix in at a designated kiteboard launch, then I agree that you should get away from them and stay away! That, of course, includes other kiteboarders who are taking a swimming break, and photographers trying to get good close-up kiteboarding shots.
Similarly... if you don't have the skill to drive a car along a street without veering into oncoming traffic, then find another way to get where you're going because "the reality is if you injure someone else they are going to try to sue the fck out of you". And don't even get me started about playing volleyball, rugby or whatever, regardless how fun. It's dangerous, and you might get sued!
Having fun is not a good enough reason. Be safe. Stay home. Don't get sued.
