Guy got attacked off kite beach. Lowers was packed at that same time with windsurfers. Shark goes for the kiter though. At any rate, strong incentive to make all your jibes!

My cousin worked at the old KahalaHospital on Oahu.
She said they get between 7-15 Shark bites each summer, mostly at the KewaloBasin area, some at MagicIsland, some at PearlCity, EVERY year from 1969 thru 1977.
Hawaiin Tourist Bureau keeps it sorta secret, to keep tourists going there and playing in the waters.

Mr. Sensitive: I'm sorry you've lost your sense of humor.

I have to agree, I didn't see ANY humor in that either, but I kept quiet... Well until now. I'm sure we could make a lot of jokes about kiters, but joking about anybody (well except maybe lawyers Smile ) getting bitten by a shark shows no class....
