What do you mean by that? Jeff does a great job of trying to get the word out about how tricky Crissy can be. When people ask me on the beach, I try and give them a honest assessment of the conditions as I see, or have experienced them. When I see someone on the beach struggle to launch and keep their kite in the sky I try and have a friendly chat about how what would happen on the water if the same thing happened. I'm not going to "police" in terms of physically stopping someone entering the water (although I might have helped tackle the guy launching a 17m in 25knots), or abuse/shame them into not going out. From what I've seen Crissy regulars do a reasonable job of self administering, it's the judgment of some users who seem to unreasonable.
