Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
Not sure if you were flying an RRD or another green kite, but you were the guy in the blue wetsuit, sunglasses, who was losing a little hair up top, who kept throwing 'tricks' (and I use that term very loosely) at the upper launch at 3rd today in the little cove that everyone takes off from.
I was trying to get out (behind 4 other kiters who were all lined-up) and saw you repeatedly come into the cove, do a 180 (about 2' above the water), and then head back out, meanwhile slowing everyone trying to get out and making for an incredibly dangerous situation. I saw you do this twice while I was trying to get out the first time. And then when people were struggling to get out, you kept looking over like you wanted to get in and show off your crappy 180!
Then I came back into cove to the north of the main launch after rescuing some poor guy's board, and while I was trying to get out, you were pulling the same shit!!! I chased after you and yelled at you not to do tricks in that cove any more, but you appeared to ignore me (as well everyone else giving you dirty looks).
Come on man, get with it - that is unsafe for you and more importantly, everyone else. To be honest, you were being such an idiot I didn't care if you cracked your head open on a rock but you were screwing everyone else up as well, and the newbs were freaked out. You think you can do tricks? Go to the lower launch and show off there.
You want to be an idiot, do it on your own time, on a weekday, when it's empty, not Saturday when it's slammed.
This is awesome, not from the usual make popcorn and spectate view, but these are exactly the articles you see in the "Hey Brah" section of the Maui newspaper. The target could be an annoying barista at the local coffee shop, the guitar guy who always hangs in Paia, or...the 180 kitesurfer at 3rd!
Bayareacallout.com i didnt see that option on the domain names. That would get my vote. Talktough.edu.org.gov/newb. Keep the vibe positive. Look on the bright side, if thats what u have to complain about, life is pretty darn good.
@cove180s Sweet transitions, brah
All the world's a stage

Yea we have one of those at Crissy, rides a white wainman. Likes to hug the shoreline ...looking forward to the bubble coming back on the inside...he likes to show off for his women etc.
He will be talked to by a group of sailors next time he shows up..
I previously gave him the hand out and all I got was..why why why why why.
I highly doubt this guy ignored you - he probably didn't hear you let alone know what you were trying to yell (maybe had no idea he was pissing you off?). I would just chat with him if I were to see him on the beach again and let him know. I doubt he is an idiot or a jerk but I would sure feel like one if I wrote something like this about someone in such poor taste who I'd later have to meet
Play nice children - plenty of room for all of us in the pool
Well said aloha. Well said.
Hmmmm......I could jump in to a 3rd Ave. thread like everyone jumped on my Waddell (note the spelling!) thread.....
But I won't. ...Just sayn'
