Gotta love the politics in kitesurfing!

But as I always say...No pictures = No proof

At this point, I am going with a smear campaign by AaronBay...UNLESS he/she can post some pics from the event of the supposed clown action...

Would like to see some pictures too :D
2 years ago I have been to Brisbane and started to learn Kitesurfing there.
The only shop in Brisbane which did not try to sell me some overpriced old stuff, just because I had no idea about Kitesurfing, was John and Kitepower :thumb: :thumb:

salute from Austria,

I have to join Aaron on this one.
As I said in the mail I sent you, KP, were you really serious when you brought a student in this environment? 20 kites out, all gathered in the same place? What if he had crashed his kite of someone's head? what if he had tangled his lines with another kite?
Not only this was annoying for the race but it was also dangerous, which I would not expect from a shop that calls itself a kiteschool...
About your teamriders... ok they Kiteloop, they handlepass... good for them :thumb: ! But do you really think it is responsible to do that in the middle of EVERYONE?
Clowns? maybe...
Showoffs? sure...
Dangerous and immature :baby: :baby: ? Definitely!

I didn't follow the reasons for the animosity :argue: there is between the two shop, but seeing such behavior made me question the "respectability" and "legitimacy" of your shop.

Big bold mistake to do that on an event with many potential clients... You sure have lost a lot of credibility!

As a business with a public face, IMHO you don't really have the leeway to make funnies like that without coming off as total cocks. And if lessons etc were being held in the middle of a competition then that's downright retarded.

Of course, things may not be as they're being reported so I'm reserving the above judgement for the general case.

if the kiteboarding demographic wasn't so retarded and old and had a more keen representation of people who actually give a fuck about the sport,

this comment would have been much more well received. :thumb:

i think it's hilarious. but ohhhh no you faggots are all uptight about something trivial

well bitches better get used to it cause i foresee a new kind of crew rollin in to this industry and FUCKIN BITCHES UP!

but you fucktards won't (i mean can't) understand this
