Eh? What's wrong with bar flowers? Us North Riders love them. We use them like that Grindr App, so we can spot another potential companion for a bit of SUP love.

But if you're worried about your sexuality, this coming from the man who once told Kelly Slater to his face, surfing is ghey, (note the spelling to define knaff as against gay which means happy in proper English), you can always get yourself a course of this stuff then you can do all the sea sweeping and under biting you like with impunity.

Bille. I still think you are confusing my comments with someone else's. That or you are dumber than a bag of rocks.

Lay off the sauce

I'M sure Laird is enough coordinated to use a surfboard :naughty:

Once you Surfed Teahupoʻo let's talk again!

So My word is If the best big wave surfer in the world is into it (actually developped the idea in the early years) there is absolutely no reason to degrade this sport.

I'm not into it either but I respect people who like it ;)

Nothing wrong with bar flowers. I just thought Do-it might not know might not know about your crowd and was humorously insinuating that this post might not be appreciated.

No disrespect to your cause. You be you and I'll be me. I do hope you see the humor in all this though. :allbegood: (OK, I'm not that secure. It took a lot for me to put that emoticon on here :lol: )

It's interesting to see the level of engagement of kiteboard forum members in various topics, based on the number of pages of posts.

You may want to use "boring" instead.

Not a SUP fan myself, but I see many people having fun in no wind and places, where kitesurfing is no possible, like bigger cities (e.g. Hamburg). Lots of water to paddle around and keeping people on the water and fit.

Each to its own. Now move on! :)

Well put Toby. For me, getting out on the water anyway on your own power, focusing on the moment, alone or with my wife and boy. Thats a happy moment.

If its windy, get out the kite or go downwinding on sup. Downwind in 25 knots on Sup is way, way more challenging than kiting.
