I'm trying to expose the myth that we're all just "one accident" away from our spots being closed.
This myth is perpetuated by "beach-troll kite police" types (and Dr. Evel), and ruins the vibe at kite spots all over the world.
I really don't need another --dyyylan-- to be bad-mouthing me on this forum ; so "Please"
don't take this the wrong way .
Look at your next post here :

It kinda sums up the mentality of a Lot of kiters ; there like the local surfer,
in that there Vibe or feeling ,is Way more important than the actual reality of what's
gonna happen, if things aren't cleaned up in the kite boarding seen.
Unless a national club is formed, and It is NOT privately owned, but owned by
all it's members ,with an actual rating for the members that
specifies what there ability is ; No way will kite boarding , (as a sport) will be
around in the USA for much more than another 10-years. Along with that rating
comes the ability to use beaches of various technical abilities needed to be
allowed to kite there.
And YES -- the rating will also come with a mandatory insurance policy.
Basically if you LOOSE your rating, and get kicked out of the club ; you
can FORGET about ever kite boarding in the USA again !!
Where am i coming up with this Shit ?
This is Exactly how the club works for ALL the HG and PG pilots in the
USA ; and are covered for liability with an ins policy.
You Need a club rating just to fly .
If you get kicked out of our club, for doing anything that could get
a flying aria shut down ; forget about ever flying again, and go sell all your gear !!
It's called the USHPA.
Now How does That , fit along with your Vibe ?
Back to --dyyylan--
He thinks it's just FINE, that i almost got Killed because some jack-ass pulled
his QR and didn't have a leash attached to his kite. Shit like that simply wouldn't
happen if a club were dictating the safety features needed on there users equipment,
instead of some , "could give a shit Dick" , that could care less about others.
Hope Ya don't Hate me for saying that ; but your gonna Hate it a LOT more, if
when kite-spots start shutting down all across the nation, (like i Think they will) !!
