If I remember correctly, when Supa showed up on an Epic thread, it was for the specific purpose of pimping the Core kites he is an ambassador for, in his area.
The Core dealer, on the other hand, was smart and humble and stayed off threads for other brands.
Over time, it has become an ongoing debate about guessing wind speeds, and accuracy of video, and guessing wind direction and conditions, and laminar flow, and who has better stories about their Glory Days, and weight of wives, and how many sessions ridden per week, and how close to the beach we live, and who knows wind better by looking at video, and what we were doing in 1977, and who jumps higher at over 50, and who won what contests 35 years ago, and who is the lightwind king guru, and a whole bunch of other ego driven nonsense.
As another old man who used to feel ten feet tall and bulletproof, it is embarrassing to witness.
I do not know why the Epic threads, on occasion, attract a few who cannot help themselves but to comment on gear they have not flown and who get so pissed because the Epic threads are long and full of accolades by people who have flown and like the gear...not sure why this should be so bothersome.
It is a big forum with lots of room for thousands of threads, not sure why anybody would feel the place is crowded, if you don't like what you see, it is so goddamn simple to not participate in a thread.
But if you come here and mouth off, for months at a time, sooner or later somebody is gonna call you out and maybe give you a spankin.
But still I feel bad because old Supa man has taken his marbles and gone away mad, and he took his faithful sidekick 14Toeside with him.
