"you go and try to talk to a local surfer in Hawaii and you will more than likely get your ass beat from interrupting their session"

well now we all know where you got your attitude from. What the f--- is wrong in Hawaii? You would think they would be chill sounds like gang war. I am reminded of that rat study where that guy studied overcrowding. At first the rats were peaceful lived in harmony but as the population rose they became more vicious until at the end it was cannibalism and war.

Don't set your shit to go off....

You will hurt yourself.

At some point, it will happen and as you're flying through the air to watery doom you will be thinking "fuck, those dicks were right"[/quote]

I appreciate the concern man, but I have decided that I will either A. Hold on for dear life. And if that doesn't work out then B. Bail early and then go tell everyone how right they are.

Yeah I think I might have an anger management problem. But thanks for the respect.

You know most of the surfers I have met have been complete assholes, especially a lot of the shortboarders. Which I can see where they are coming from. In california just about everyone surfs, and the majority of them are begginer longboarders who don't know proper surf edicate. And if a bunch of tourists where in my local area stealing my waves or hanging out in the middle of a riding area I'd probably be pissed too. There was one guy in North Shore who snaked a local, and he got his ass beat out in the water. And when he got back on the beach, they beat his ass again.

Yeah kiters are way more friendly lol

well all the surfers here in michigan are super friendly you can snake their waves all day no big deal, we will still buy you a beer. Kind of cold tho.

it's not a surfer thing it's about the overcrowding I think. Guys paddle out and catch maybe 1 or 2 waves all day because they are spending all day in line instead of you know actually surfing. that makes them angry as f--- and willing to beat up anyone who crosses them. by contrast kiters have the entire ocean to play in. if you need space just go find it. if you do surf some place where it's not crowded that will mellow you out too.

Now I am willing to offer a peace offering for everyone in here, and forget anything that was ever said or done with a nice fresh clean start. We need to start putting our differences aside and start seeing what we can do to make kiting better. It's like Abraham Lincoln once said, "A house divided against itself cannot stand."

Have a good day
