Without a doubt, there is always an element out there that really goes for the "look at me" stunts. Often that kind of thing happens right in front of the launch site, particularly at sites that lack waves. Quite honestly though, wanton craziness is not just limited to kiting. A similar amount of rash boldness can be seen in windsurfing too. The perfect example of that is on the Washington side of the Hatchery right at the wall and point. From what I understand, lately there has been a lot heated exchanges between the windsurfers and kiters right in the prime display zone. I avoid that spot like the plague, because it gets far too nuts and dangerous for me. Instead I much prefer Swell City, especially since you can sail a bit upwind and downriver in clean wind and swell literally by yourself.

I have 2 friends in wheelchairs now because of kiting.
I have 0 friends in wheelchairs because of wsing.

I don't like those odds.
Wsing and SUPing for me is just fine.
