I haven't been looking at these forums for about two years now - have come back and I am shocked to see that the current generation of kiters have become a bunch of whinging pussies.
(winge) my north release only works on north spreaders
(winge) this bow kite is not 100% safe
(winge) these fins are too sharp
winge winge fucking winge!
Can I suggest the newbie faggots our there take a look at the forums before kiteforums - go to yahoo lists and look for kitesurfing. Back then we had people like Mel who came up with innovative ideas on different leash designs. There was intellectual discussion on different ideas on how to improve kitesurfing. People came up with ideas on bridle designs, board changes. When the manufacturers served us lemons these people all got together and made lemonade.
Now I look at the current kiteforum people and all I see is complain complain complain! Dont get me wrong there are a few the seemd to come up with innovative ideas, but the rest just sit here and winge and threated lawsuits whuile they wait till the manufacture brings out a fix!
Kitesurfing would have never got to the point it is at now if you people had been the only kitesurfers 5 years ago!
Dude, I hear what you are saying but there will always be people that whine about things, that's just life. Instead of taking the posts to heart, start reading them a bit more lightheartedly and you'll get a good laugh at some of the comments posted on the forum. Just remember, somewhere there are people who think opposite to you who are having a good laugh at your posts as well. Yin and Yang, that's what makes life a fun time.
