Chill down ...no one is attacking you, this should be light hearted conversation.
Of course I'll build my own kite, it's in the process
thanks for reminding me to push it even more.
Umm, I actually sell my boards for big bucks! Some people appreciate good hand made boards. Talking competing and financing this expensive hobby. I can buy any kite I want, no probs, plenty of disposable income. But that's not the point for me. Again, for me.
Also the HF finished ! Ha! Competing again!
And please ask your Aussie friends how was this country run by the government and still is, how we have a free health and social benefits, etc etc
Provided by the government, which is more like Scandinavian countries than anything else. Aristocracy in Australia?
Come and see. We are an convict country, far far from any aristocracy. We despise any to be fair. We call anyone a mate. A mate ship is what defines us.
I am no Aussie by birth and lived for 32 years in socialism. I think I'm qualified to talk what is and what isn't a government run economy. Something others were just reading about.
Back to prices...
I just smile on 1000Euros boards...2000€, no worries. Whatever. A show ponies boards. Nothing else for 99% of kiters.
600€ for a new bar? Omg. A hype, nothing more. Soon it will be 800 or 1000€. Not my problem they spent a lot on marketing. Take a Mike Labs HF, he does not need marketing.
Laughing stock....for this sport to survive the prices must drop, not rise.
