shannon best rolled into cape cod with a total lack of knowledge of the history and the hard battle fought by the cape cod kiting community to gain access to southern beaches in the peak season when cape cod boasts fantastic south west wind.
we have a major access issue effecting kiters globally, do we need the peanut gallery of best cronies attempting their pathetic version of damage control?
it's jul 10 and you have another 50 kiting days until labor day. in august when west dennis is closed down you think shannon will give a toss while he bides his time in the columbia river gorge or the rio vista delta.
lets try to learn one thing from this post. kiting is a global pursuit, you can pack a bag of kit and be 1/2 way across the world at a premium kiting spot in 10 hours, yet if you don't respect the local rules and regs you are going to f it up for all kiters.
shannon, you were a maui local yet i never saw you kiting hookipa or kanaha. you bided your time on kite beach as you knew that was the only way the sport would survive.
step up to the plate and quit hiding behind your network of cronies that joined this forum to defend your actions.
Kiterfighter, Forgive me for making this observation about how anal you are but in case you cannot figure it and it is obvious you cannot see that I was simply paraphrasing in the interest of saving time for the post. I know I said that or should I quote that for you? Why don't you just admit that you hate Best kiteboarding and are another Best basher? I'm gonna go out on another limb here but I seriously doubt you fly anything Best for you to pester and banter on this far. Yes I know you said you have Best kites which is a probably another lie. Your dislike for SB, someone you prabably don't even know is transparent. All that I said was that the man did apologize. You can chose to accept it or you don't. Since we are on the subject of boycotts and you own Best why don't you be proactive and stop flying your Best kites immediately. I will gladly take your kites off your hands if you want to show everyone here that you are serious about this boycott and your post. This is your opportunity to prove to everyone on kiteforum that you are serious about this boycott. I promise I will put them to good use.kiterfighter wrote:Nice try Chaz your qoute from SB leaves out the word "controversy". There is no controversy SB kited where he was not supposed too. End of story. All the other talk is just BS. He is trying to make excuses for his behavior since he knows he fucked up.
SB is responsible for where and how he kites not me, Phil, or anyone else. Get it?
JK you seem like a nice guy and forgive me for being presumptuous but I think that part where SB said "f-u" was omitted in the previous posts. I must have missed that part. So you are saying that SB said "F-u" to you after you told him that? Wow I did not know that but seems unlikely that a guest of yours would say that to the hosts. Either way that's totally not cool. I was just reading on the Best forum that guy who owns the shop up there said there was no permanant harm done to your access. Well at least I'm glad to hear that you can still kite there!jkrug wrote:the fact that SB may have apologized somewhere is irrelevant. Phil told him verbatim there was no kiting allowed there...where's the ambiguity in that? THere seems to be this attitude today that apologizing for something resolves everything. It doesn't fly w/me. If I tell someone they cannot kite somewhere, and they basically say f-u, and later they apologize after kiting in that spot, all i can say is f-u back.
a suggestion was made to use physical force to stop someone from kiting in prohibited areas; guys like SB tend to hide behind lawyers, so its probably not worth it.
i have nothing against Best Kiteboarding; i've owned one kite and a bar from them. I know 'tisebag' and that he likes Best equipment alot, as do many folks around here. thats all fine. I don't know SB at all, and frankly, don't care to. he had his one chance at a first impression...
