What happened here then? I believe this is what Toby was referring to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UCQFJg4JaQgrigorib wrote: ↑Tue Sep 12, 2017 2:26 amThe hurricane winds are pretty steady. If it's blowing 35 it won't triple.
Also, first responders will risk their lives to save him. And he won't be the first not being risked for.
I was a little north in Boca Raton and was pretty underpowered on my 7m, should have taken the 10. Miami was getting much stronger gusts, when I looked at the meters down that way it was more like 30-35. Wind was very gusty - some people commented how this guy was a kook because he was dropping in the water, but the same thing kept happening to me during jibes on my surfboard. There was something really funky going on with a strong rip close to the beach + the lulls in the wind.
Skateboarders used to have tendency to trespass and ride empty outdoor swimming pools. There's no brake on the board so that fact might freak out aging lazy worried farts. In Hollywood, FL I was stopped by a park ranger for skateboarding too. Town of old people, I say. Hey, in Germany the Segway is outlawed because "it has no mechanical brakes". Go imagine mechanical brake on a Segway. On the other hand it would free roll from a hill when turned off, so maybe some kind of parking brake and head/tail lights would be necessary. And in UK you're not allowed to ride Segway on any public property. In Greece kiteboarding is illegal "outside of dedicated kitesurfing businesses/stations". All on "last I heard" basis, I hope things changed.longwhitecloud wrote: ↑Wed Sep 13, 2017 10:19 amNot for me to decide how you run your country but i am surprised that if you had a 14 year old son that was part of hold up a store and no one got hurt - is was ok for him to go to prison for 120 years so he cannot hurt anyone else including himself. Each to their own. Off topic politics for sure..
I saw 3 skateboarders get arrested for skateboarding on the pavement when i was in Oahu on a holiday kiting - 3 cop cars turned up. There is no law in NZ for skateboarding on the pavement or road in NZ so it was a huge surprise - so maybe they can arrest a kiteboarder too! alien to me, but different places and cultures i guess.
