Genius Instructor Spotted in Alameda Last Night

B/W Ocean Rodeo 10m

Both NOT wearing helmets, and crashing the kite repeatedly on the beach, next to families.

Recently ran into a family of 3 where I kite, trying to be especially vague here. They just returned from vacation, where they took kiteboarding lessons. They were super stoked on the whole thing. I noticed that they were all flying top of the line equipment, again, being intentionally vague. They were crashing their kites non-stop. At one point they blew out the leading edge of one of the kites.

It just seems really wrong to me to sell beginners super expensive equipment, that they are just going to destroy. I can just imagine the shysters at the school where they learned, shining on all these tourists. It's like giving a new driver the keys to a brand new Ferrari. I could see in their faces how bummed they were when the kite's leading edge popped.
