Maybe if Hitler had kitesurfed he wouldn't have been so angry.
He was only angry when he was losing. :naughty:

So you don't really respect it. You just think they have a god given right to run their country any way they want as long as they can stay in power by keeping everyone else down. Sounds horrible to me but what do I know.
I don't agree how the states is run but I accept it's their choice.
Haha I agree on that one!

It's not like Saudi is a democracy where people get to choose...

everyone should be allowed to kitesurf no matter where you are from or who you are. Maybe if Hitler had kitesurfed he wouldn't have been so angry.
I thought Hitler did.

Were women ever allowed to kitesurf in Saudi Arabia?

Last I heard girls sports are banned in any public school in Saudi Arabia.

The way the kingdom treats its women is disgusting.

Probably a good thing they ban kitesurfing, because the dress code that they wold impose on women kitesurfers would get them drowned
