Re: Corona Virus - Has your country banned kitesurfing?

We are now entering the "moral question" zone, which is essential to include if we want to distinguish between right or wrong. However, lacking this very skill, is prohibiting us doing so... :idea: Before you distinguish between right and wrong, you have to decide in which manner those two things e...

Re: Corona Virus - Has your country banned kitesurfing?

The perfect way is to vaccinate your own population and then spread a virus. I hope when that happens that we don't encourage the spread. No government would vaccinate its population, if that government was okay with committing biological warfare against the planet. Only loyal citizens supportive o...

Re: Corona Virus - Has your country banned kitesurfing?

I think you lounge chair golf playing kooks shouldn’t be kiting anyway, so stay home so you don’t need rescuing. Excellent example of the f*** it attitude that is rampant in humanity. These people exist and we certainly care for them in the same manner as we care for those of us who are more consci...

Re: Corona Virus - Has your country banned kitesurfing?

Most experienced kiters know that you should be ready to self rescue because you shouldn’t count on others to be around or able to help. This is called accepting responsibility for ones own actions. And potentially be willing to pay the price. If you extend this mindset/attitude to rescue, you can ...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Even a high quality carbon mask, used for painting cars or airplanes ; they are only good for a rather short time-span, and then the filter needs replacing. If you use it too long, to change the filters ; a guy can get really sick, from the fumes. Bille I never could convince my old boss of that. H...

Re: Corona Virus - Has your country banned kitesurfing?

Thank you for explaining it then :D First a kiter has to be in need for rescue (rarely happens). Then the kiter has to be infected and not sick (if he/she was sick he/she wouldn't kite). Then you got to pass it on - which doesn't just automatically happen just because you end up rescuing someone. O...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Stopping Corona isn't difficult in theory. Everyone just stay at home for 14 days. Might as well made it mandatory to stock 14 days of water and food. 14 days gone and all is back to normal. Yes it absolutely is difficult in theory and even more so in practice. And that is specifically why there ar...

Re: Corona Virus - Has your country banned kitesurfing?

It seems like most kiters are misunderstanding the biggest issue with these bans. While unnecessary utilization of rescue resources is the easiest to understand, it is not the reason with the most impact. Right now our rescue personnel, from water rescue, Coast Guard, law enforcement, and fire depar...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Assuming wearing masks wouldn't alter behaviour - which I personally think is a very questionable assumption. Stopping Corona isn't difficult in theory. Everyone just stay at home for 14 days. Might as well made it mandatory to stock 14 days of water and food. 14 days gone and all is back to normal...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Masks are also a place where airborne virus will sit increasing the wearer's exposure. So in situation A, there's a mask which catches the virus and that's where it sits. In situation B, there's no mask and that's the virus goes.... Where exactly? Possibly into the lungs instead of on the mask? Is ...
