Thanks for the heads up :D
I've tricked a Bunch of riders, in 25+-mph wind , by doing exactly That !! :D

They look over & see me do a kite-loop in a transition turn ; then think
if that legless old fart can do that, then so can i. Then they proceed to do a Full
power kite-loop in 25 + wind, and get Fricken ,"LAUNCHED" . SO Funny !!!!! :lol:

Pulling the leader-line ; that shortens the diameter of a kite-loop and
gives it 1/2 the power of a normal kite-loop , done with just the bar.

Your a fucking Kook ; if Ya don't know That .

That one again. I almost always do that, because it is very convenient for checking the lines before launching on your own. But no need to discuss the pros and cons of that again ;-)
I rig up directly downwind, it's usually just the old dinosaurs who want everyone to know that they are from "back in the day" that rig the old fashioned way (that co-incidentally none of the schools teach anymore).
Schools are teaching downwind rigging now? When did it change?

well, isn't it ironic?
apparently, in order to recognize a kook you have to be a kook for yourself. it is amazing how quickly this thread filled up with posts of the people who are so scared to be included in the kook-list, so they make up any perfectly innocent situation to a kiteboarding heresy.

what i want to say is that kiting is just a hobby! all who claim they kite (almost) every day is just same nerds as these computer games junkies.
it is pathetic when kiteboarding is considered lifestyle.
it is pathetic when perfectly healthy and athletic adult persons beg for money to live this lifestyle.
some posters geographical location assumes that they suppose to be sleeping instead of posting, that means that they most probably sleep when they suppose to be kiting. pathetic...
also funny how some pathetic posters claim to perform some supernatural actions such as multiple savings of the swimmers or heroic taming of the other persons looping kites by swift pulling the correct side of the bar while owner of the looping kite was violently dragged by his kite...

why there are no threads about those things?
if you are so good at kiting and you see a kook go and tell him what do you think of him. just ranting here not makes you a non-kook. get over yourselves...

I am most definitely a kook.

I rig my lines down wind (well most of the time cross wind....)
Wear a helmet.
I fly a foil kite on occasion.
I ride a mutant board in the wave when everyone else is on surfboards,
I ride on land too.. super kookdom,,, landboarding and buggying whilst wearing a hawian shirt and crocs!,,,

You know whats good about being a kook?
I do what I enjoy and don't give three fly fucks what the pretentious cool kitesurfers think.
