@kiwimike, I'm glad you're standing up for your principles,
but I learned the hard way the time and aggravation is not worth it.
So than maybe the best would be as you mentioned between you & him to face with,
if you got balls and want to be a winner
It seems like the forum is not doing any good for you either,
because that entity is already established and instructors still needed certification for their ego
I think coming here and complaining is not doing any good for the kiteboarding community
because it reveals the corruption and monopolization to the world in our sport.
