I can't get past the 1st sentence, the lack of structure in your writing is enough to make me not care.

Only Toby's and Westozzy's posts were worthwhile the rest are Trolls, I am a photographer not a writer. Thanks for your input Toby you points are well taken. Cauipe is different than Paracuru the locals act faster it is a smaller area.

I used to think that in 2015 racism was popular only among uncultured people but I was wrong :o

Racist point taken let me zero in more: French, German, Italian, Lithuanian, Russian, Spanish guess these were the majority. Was just a generalization did not mean to be racist. Dont be soo sensitive girls.

Aaaaahhhhh......selective racism, that's ok then.

Portuguese?? They are a bit like Spanish, do they count? How do you choose, do you ask people for their passports???
Does Spanish include those from the Basque region, really need to be clear on that one, could really upset someone.
What about races you don't like but kiss arse if they are more intelligent/bigger than you? (Toby :lol: )
Where do you stand on dual nationality, or people like you who think they are locals but are really just tourists - although to be fair Americans are technically tourists as most of you lit came from Europe and South America (who I presume you also don't like or are they ok?)
Ah man you need to be more specific, I can't work out if you really are a racist or just a Zalupa?? (Google it)

there, there, JB, sorry you have to tolerate these hooligans. but now you see what are up against here in Eurostan every day.
so we had to send them away for a while just to have a little break from them.
and don't call me a kook just yet, because i have a solution for you. try to introduce them to some intestinal infections or parasites common at your place, let them spend more time in the crapper and less on the beach :allbegood:

Hang on - so - you moved to Brazil. I'm assuming you moved there because it's a lovely spot that's great for kiting? Lucky you! You moved there 7 years ago and it was lovely and quiet. Super.

Unfortunately for you, times do change. Kiting is becoming extremely popular. Kiters do go on holiday to 'lovely spots that are great for kiting' - just like the one you yourself moved to for those reasons.

Sadly, if you want to return to conditions as they were 7 years ago, you need to pack your bags and go searching out a new spot - but bear in mind, in another 7 years, your new spot might also get invaded. That's just the way the world works. I'd reccomend going somewhere really shit and cold, with some pollution - you could probably have the place to yourself for a few decades! But even that's no guarantee - I go there every weekend and it's already chokka.

As far as rights of way & things go - yep, there's no excuse for not following them - but there's a lot of people learning to kite who don't have the skills to do so, or aren't aware of the rules. It's the same at all the beaches around the world that have lots of kiters - there's nothing different or unusual about your spot.

I also wonder how all the real locals feel at your spot - the ones who lived there before hordes of kiters such as yourself started to invade their lovely quiet beaches. I wonder if they felt the same as you do now? I'd have a bit more sympathy for you if you had always lived there, but as it is, you're just a part of the crowd.

He doesn't care what I think, and doesn't respond to trolls.......maybe he fancies me :o

Hey Jason, not a Euro in sight this morning. Had it all to myself for two hours, solid 9 meter.
