few more cases:
- you're launching someone's kite and while you still have it in hands he/she starts pulling on the bar hard powering it a lot
- you're barely managing a lightwind tack and someone drops a kite in front of you
- you keep coming back close to shore to do a nice jump/transition just to keep seeing someone hanging out with a kite parked static in the air, chatting
- you're coming back to shore tired (or grossly overpowered) to land but others are continuously coming out from that tiny launch spot :)
- someone else (besides several people you know well and trust) attempts to pump or roll your kite or rig/attach your lines
- when someone borrows your pump (and/or connect a different hose to it) and doesn't return it where it was
- when someone demoes your board you see them for no particular reason start readjusting straps
- when someone picks up or lands your kite and then moves with it in a way that you just see they move one of the lines over the wing and you end up with crossed lines
- when you see a knot on your line
- walking in/out and a line catches on some root or rock
- when you see someone with a cigarette is getting near your kite
- when you go on a quick downwinder with someone who spends 45 minutes to pump and rig
- you fail a frontroll and wipeout. Another dude stops, parks his kite so he's actually "in the way" to the board and checks on you "do you know how to bodydrag upwind?"
- someone starts correcting your launch technique "you should launch with kite towards water, it's safer that way"
- someone is riding in your wake as you approach shore and it's about time to be turning around
- when you hear that there are people who pee into their wetsuits
- when you jump and get a "bzzt" jolt upon landing from post-storm electricity in the air and you realize you better stop riding now
- when people claim "complete, full revolutionary redesign" of same kite model compared to its previous year
- when you're debating buying a kite on sale and it disappears so you all feel relieved but then it pops up again
- fireball, clickbar, fifthline, high-Y, turn-to-release, non-standard valve, non-standard hose, etc.
- pulleys which get jammed with sand
- $45 for a piece of plastic linemount
- a tracker piece obviously reporting BS
- watching someone using a powered screwdriver to force-fit an M6 bolt into 1/4" thread, or opposite
- hearing rocks grind on the bottom of a twintip
- hitting sunken ship with a foil
- when you see someone riding with a boardleash
- when people walk out to launch and don't take the board with them
- getting into wet wetsuit
- people not rinsing/shaking/wiping any sand off the gear before bringing into your car
- wrapping wet bar/lines into perfectly dry-landed foil kite
- picking seaweed onto foil
- people not following riding pattern in a slick
- people who turn around in front of you in the middle of a channel
- people who ride twice a year but get mad blaming their kite which is same model like yours and you've just had a decent session on it
- people who think manjha line is ok
- people jumping over your lines and making over all of them except one. Apparently fins cut lines easily :)
- people who don't learn how to swim
- girls-only kite trips
- stretching/equalizing foil kite bridles
- pinholes
- mosquitos, jellyfish
- airline baggage fees
- someone put Nutella into fridge the night before (c) European girls
- ducks emerging from underneath water surface in front of you
- flying fish getting stuck in one's ankle
