Sorry you feel that way but I don't see it like that at all. In fact I would like to thank Carafino and his mates here for reinforcing why I'm wasting my time trying to get in to kite hydro foiling and I'm better off putting my positive energy in to something better.
And here are a couple of reasons why.
UK Nationals 3 entries (I stayed away because of death threats from Carafino)
US nationals was it 9 entries from a population of 318 million. By all accounts Carafinos presence there was an utter joke.
The Foiling week which I have just come back from
34 top class moth entries plus a large number of other foilers all pushing 40 knots. Kite foiling event cancelled because of threats by Carafino to turn up so I guess we wont get to see what a decent product will do.http://www.foilingweek.com/for-sailors/results/
Moth worlds 130 entries starts next week.
UK Course racing kite event in Weymouth this weekend cancelled due to lack of interest.
So I will take Carafinos advice and I will crawl back under the rock I crawled out of with my silly little expensive trailer sailor
When the world of kite surfing works out how to run an event that is decided on the water as it should be and not on the basis of who brings the biggest gang of goons with/without crow bar give me a shout.
