I hear what your saying about the Italians, it may be a generalisation, but its well earned, just cant trust them. When I was in Cumbuco last year they were always trying to pull a scam.


Shame on you Animo.... only 17 posts and your already posting prejudice/racist stuff that also has nothing to do with kitesurfing.

In case you still have any doubts it is a generalization as well as prejudice/racist rubbish.

Incidently Animo how many Italians have you met?
I've lived in many countries and I have to say that a sad fact is that there are problems everywhere, but I have to say that Italians are a great bunch of people. I have found no other counrty to be as welcomming as Italy is. Funny thing was that when I moved back to the USA two complete strangers turned out to be very helpfull and go out of their way to introduce me around in proffessional cirles....it might be a coincidence, but they were both of Italian origin :thumb: Buy the way I'm not Italian, but American.

do the number of posts one makes question the authenticity of facts one states?

I'd say I've met over 100 Italian guys and they all have the same attitude towards life, one where everything revolves around them. Its not a criticism, its just the culture of the country.

go to Cumbuco and then you'll see what I'm talkign about. There is a pousada and shop on teh beach owned by a bunch of them and all you need to do is go into the shop or come into contact with any of them on "their part of the beach" and you will understand. My friend whom I was hanging around with who is of Italian origin only told us on the last day of his heritage because he didn't want to associate himself with them.

Ultimately life is about our direct experiences.

Holy shit, what an idiotic discussion.

I got my kite & board fuckin' stolen in Portugal, someone tried to open my car in Tarfia, I met assholes on the Northern German beaches, so WTF?!
Portugues, Spanish and Germans are all fine, apart assholes which are everywhere.

I'm sorry that some brainless italian took your coat and some pizza-sole-mafia-mandolino does something wrong in Cumbuco, but please get a look out of your smalll meanless poor nest and get some contact with the outside world....

Toby please take this discussion in the flamer's paradise and that's it.

How much time have you spent in Italy to come up with your profound conclusions?
