You still didn't answer the question, please read my post again and let it soak in.
I didn't call poleboarders kooks, but go ahead if you would like and guess what I used to poleboard also.


Here's your answer Imactan: It only takes one person to ruin something for everyone else. Congratulations, you are that one lonely person.

I'm sure the kiting community would be happy to see you STFU and go away. When you are ready to spread some positive energy, you might be welcome back. For now, have fun by yourself.

Yup that one kiter sailing through the middle of a active contest area in Pro final set back kiting/windsurfer relations 5 years. Good job!

I was there earlier.. what happened? Did they have to re-run the heat? Did they chase the guy out of the water?

They shot his kite out of the sky with a potato cannon, it was awesome!!! jk
Wasn't there but from what I understand, he just sailed thru, maybe a photobomb effort, who knows, and didn't stick around.
You can see him going thru on a clip on the AWT site (2nd day).

Seeing too many kiter issues all over the map. For some reason, the kiters are really disrespectful to others. Seems to me like more and more kiters are developing these big egos - need to make sure their presence is known, instead of enjoying life and loving what they do with it being respectful and sharing the playground. Maybe b/c kiting is so easy? One rotten egg can contaminate the whole bunch.
