Racism is the generalization of someone's hate applied to a majority. Why did you justify yoursefl with Toby and Gerhard? Euros are euros...

Every sport has a bunch of assholes that like to pretend the rules and common courtesy doesn't apply to them. I've noticed a few while on vacation recently in Hatteras. It's just what happens when a sport grows exponentially.

In my youth I would have been more prone to confrontation. These days I'm usually having so much fun kiting the last thing I want to do is roll around on the beach with some jerk tits because he cut me off. Plus I can't lose any more teeth from sports or my wife is going to divorce me....

Just take a breath JB. There are bigger problems out there.

(and at the rate the Euro is falling, you may get your wish for emptier beaches....)

Funny,

My local spot is full of 'Euros'

They are always the ones causing problem.

I live in the UK

Go figure.

OP, essentially you're saying that anyone who isn't a local causing problems is at fault. Not just Euros. Remember, the Euros are the only ones from this side of the world that can actually afford to go to Brazil for holidays.

Acting errogantly in Brazil will eventually cost them big time on or off water. Get some local guys to explain the consequencies.

Most of the locals that kite make their living off it so they are not going to bite the hand that feeds them. Some teach lessons, other have a surf shop, others fix kites and boards. There is very little opportunity there to make money so they are more worried about putting food on their tables for their families than brawling with someone new everyday see my point? :?: You have to really do something stupid two or three times to have them react. Supposedly all beaches in the state of Ceara will be regulated by the military police by the start of May. Ws from an accident that injured a little boy due to stupidity of a "…." the little boy will never walk again.
