And sadly, a lot of you guys are trying to make an ass out of someone that's contributed more to the sport than about all of you. He might have been a bit rough but he sees it all the time. Especially from white guys just getting off the plane and are too stoked to sail and don't know the area and took no precautions on how to leave their sail.
Pushing the boom in the sand does help, someone mentioned it doesn't. Try it some time, it works if you have your sail postioned correctly.
I think the guy taking the video is the prick for posting it. I'm glad he showed his face.
Aloha and welcome to Maui.

I think this is the comedy part of a Windsurfing movie. They're all actors. Starlet in bikini. Grizzled instructor and Crazy Gorge guys?

I'm thinking SuperNuker is the "instructor" in the video.

The relevance of this video shows how important video can be. Me and my buddies just did this for fun. Ironically I got this main lander attitude on video keep in mind in Hawaii there are these types of mainland individuals that want to be very aggressive.

Was the sail under control or not? Did the instructor have a point or not?

Geeez! 5 pages of over analyzing an incident like this? Hey Bret! Put on your big boy pants and get over it. People act like idiots everywhere, everyday. Why the hell is this so different?

ive had that happen to me in the gorge a couple times, so I dont think its a Hawaii thing, just a douchebag thing... its usually just a matter of opinion on what is best.

Here is the video. I tried for the record to delete this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZpXmtnWc24 The instructor says Gorge guys's are insane. And F you guys.

This guy was looking for trouble. I have run into these white guys on Hawaii that insist they own Hawaii! This is a classic example! Study the video. I have been sailing for years. I mean if this was Roweena on the rocks I get it! This is some white guy that has that white snobby scummy attitude on Hawaii!

Concur, since moving to Hawaii I have only had problems with white people that basically think they're Hawaiian, one white guy even called me a haole!
Just like in the Southpark episode.
I'm surprised that angry dude beach marshal guy didn't first say, "I've lived here _ _ years, that's usually the first thing that comes out of their mouth, here on Kauai it's the middle aged longboarder not really many windsurfers around and they're nearly all real friendly.
