Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

Keep digging, Watson! You may eventually figure out that I'm trying to convince these guys of the obvious, which they are denying. Doesn't take a detective to understand the biggest impediment to your argument is your manner. Thanks! The goal is to discuss a topic, bring to light other points of vi...

Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

Beaches or kitespots staying open has nothing to do with helmet wearing or not. And if you get pulled head first in the rocks it is because you stayed attached to the kite. Simple. 99% get that 1% don't....and of that ....one that lives in a van. Will i be quoted or thanked ? That is the question.....

it's amazing in 2021 people can't dress the way they want without being ranked or judged
They dress the way they do specifically to be ranked and judged. It's called fashion, and it's the lowest form of primal communication.

Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

I mean, fashion exists. It is an expression of who we are, and we blend function with aesthetics in everything we do. Fashion is not an expression of "who we are". Fashion is an expression of "who we wannabe ". Lack of fashion is the only true expression of who we are. Remember, fashion is followin...

Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

Even with a helmet, if someone dies, it can be a catalyst. Or would you argue with them that helmet will prevent other deaths? Absurd. A helmet is part of your quick release. Given that a helmet can increase your chance of maintaining conciousness after an impact, and you must be conscious to activ...

Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

27 pages and still going strong??? Whow. Cant be bothered to read but I think the last few msgs are about loosing the spot for kiting. So it is not really about care for others but you. You. So please do not pretend any more that YOU care about anyone but yourself. Harsh reality. Truth does hurt. T...

If I was to follow you line of thought, a really good kiter who chooses not to wear a helmet, when on a tt, but chooses to put one on when fx. foiling will look and feel like a kook, as soon as he is on the foil??? makes absolutely no sense, and doesn't measure up to reality here. Bystanders aren't...
