If that were actually the case, and the only cause, I'd have much less sympathy for them than I do. But the problem is the agitations of a little family of selfish trolls, creating trouble where there isn't really any...loosescrew wrote:It's amazing how many of us are ranting and raving about this situation when we, in fact, are the group that provoked the State to take this action.
There are bad apples in every barrel, doesn't matter what sport or any aspect of society. The fact that there are idiots that a community can't control is not a reason to ban the 99.9% who behave and play nice. Everyone is not always going to get along and not everyone will follow the rules. That is where enforcement comes in. A community can self police to a point ... but past the point, real policing is needed. [think of surfing ... decades of hyper aggressive conduct, fights in the water and on the beach ... is surfing banned? No. But people are getting arrested for "surf rage' now....effective enforcement then becomes the deterrent and things change]loosescrew wrote:It's amazing how many of us are ranting and raving about this situation when we, in fact, are the group that provoked the State to take this action. There are so many innocent water men and women who use this area every day windsurfing, surfing, supping, canoes, swimmers all who have played in this area, harmoniously, for many years. It's will be a tragedy to so many of us because of the stupid, reckless and selfish behavior of a few kiters who are now crying. I was out kiting today and so many kite egos out there - really wtf people. Get your shit together it's not all about you.
I'm sorry. I guess I should have added this detail to make it easier for you to grasp such a complicated procedure. You don't start to unwrap your lines until you're OUTSIDE of the swim zone AND have a big enough buffer downwind so that in the event that something goes wrong, you still have time to pull your head out of your ass and avoid any non-kiters.Haole_Built wrote:Listen... I know it is often irresistible to ignore this mouth-breathing troll and the drivel that he spews, but you are only encouraging him to respond. The only way to make this fucktard stop, is to just pretend he is not here.wedge wrote:Wow. After shitting all over this effort, both here and on iKitesurf months ago, Richard M tries to be constructive. Drift launching through swimmers, through breaking waves, and over coral beds... Yes! Way safer than sharing the beach.RichardM wrote:If the buoys are not excessively far out, perhaps drift launching and self-rescuing outside the swim zones will be feasible. I imagine that they wouldn't consider kite equipment to be vessels or crafts when not being able to function as such.
