Re: so i tried kitesurfing, seems dangerous.

Jasonjm, The main point of your concern was flying a kite with people on the beach in danger....all your other sports seemed to endanger only yourself. Glad you see the difference. Can you find a location away from people where you can learn to fly the kite? Flying the kite on the beach requires thi...

Re: Just a cool photo

Great photo! There was a guy at out beach who is a pro photographer that snapped this silhouette of me 3 weeks ago. Not sure how you get these silhouettes, but they sure are cool!

Re: Bad Kiteboarding Crash - When your board gets into the lines

Poor guy :( Looking at the video in slo mo it looks like the winds were up and upon landing the guys left wing clipped the water, hence his grab of the opposing line.

Re: What kite and board does Trump ride

Betcha a guy named Laird Hamilton doesn't fudge on big waves... or some of the hot kiteboarders. They wouldn't dream of it. One reason I love forums is in a goofed up thread you can come across something you never knew...I know next to shit about surfing so slap me with a dead fish, but holy shit, ...
