A couple silly questions that people asked me in the early days of kiteboarding:
1. What kind of boat do you use to pull you? I actually had people ask me this question after watching me ride with no boat in sight. Perhaps, they thought I was being towed by a submarine.
2. If you swoop your kite low while riding near a windsurfer, will the kite lines decapitate a windsurfer? Yes, that was a popular rumor back in the day.

Silly :dumbo: questions indeed; unfortunately there is no way they can make it to the competition :winner1: ,
since we wouldn't know who to put on the podium :anon: .

Furthermore, should we know the perpetrators, they would likely benefit from statute of limitation.

SupaEZ remains in 3rd place in spite of his efforts.

1. Can I use motor oil to waterproof my kite (fdvj) :winner2:

2. Now can I have first place? (Ned, aka Divine, aka Panchito) with a not anymore ludicrous question.

3. How about a toeside directional World Speed Record? (SupaEZ)

4. Can coriolis effect affect toeside side? (SupaEZ)

5. Is that question for real? (PullStrings, wondering about SupaEZ's question)

6. Is that a tent? (reported by BizB) new entry!

7. REALLY ? smaller [kite] for strong winds? ("one people" on the beach,via SupaEZ)

8. Opinion! If this Human Birdwing is for Real Or Bullsh!t?? (DrLightWind)

9. What is the difference between a double skin foil kite? (Ned)

10. Is kitesurfing really addictive? (panchito)

11. Why are pump bases flat? (consumer)

12. Why are pumps cylinders and pistons round? (Supa EZ)

13. Can a person live in Maui on 20k a year? (rtz)

14. Why are Kite Harnesses so F'n Ugly!? (Laughingman)


Reminder of amended rules: questions brought to the forum from the outside world will be admitted, provided of course they remain kite related.
It is OK for one candidate to appear several times on the list, but not on the podium.
Further candidates must be aware of one implicit rule: entries must respect basic grammatical rules such as the question mark at the end of a question.

Pending a new submission from SupaEZ, the committee is publishing the latest ranking:
1. Ultimate question: Sex or Kitesurfing, which is better? (hortobagy) :winner2:

When the answer is so obvious to members of a kiteboarding dedicated forum, the question is plain absurd.

2. Can I use motor oil to waterproof my kite? (fdvj)

3. Now can I have first place? (Ned, aka Divine, aka Panchito)

Ned disqualified himself of first place with this example of circular logic making him difficult to place.

4. How about a toeside directional World Speed Record? (SupaEZ)

5. Can coriolis effect affect toeside side? (SupaEZ)

6. Is that question for real? (PullStrings, wondering about SupaEZ's question)

7. Is that a tent? (reported by BizB) new entry!

8. REALLY ? smaller [kite] for strong winds? ("one people" on the beach,via SupaEZ)

9. Opinion! If this Human Birdwing is for Real Or Bullsh!t?? (DrLightWind)

10. What is the difference between a double skin foil kite? (Ned)

11. Is kitesurfing really addictive? (panchito)

12. Why are pump bases flat? (consumer)

13. Why are pumps cylinders and pistons round? (Supa EZ)

14. Can a person live in Maui on 20k a year? (rtz)

15. Why are Kite Harnesses so F'n Ugly!? (Laughingman)
