So hot right now - Kiteboarding 2019

Kiteboarders are finally welcoming of being known as sailors

All it took was a profit based sailing entity to tell us the error of our ways for over 20 years. How wrong we ALL were for all that time. It is like we were living in the fashion dark ages. Hello!

Anyone in the know, knows that being referred to as a kiteboarder is soo 2015.

Sailor hats, and bottles of gin and sailing Club pin badges have started to crop up on the lapels of well know professional wakestyle and waveriders at the various KIte Fashion Weeks across the World. Paris, Milan, Tokyo, they are THE accessories for 2019!

Although there have been concerns from the sailing community that sailors masts may tangle up into a ball of string, their concerns have been fully laid to rest by the commodore of Siberian Royal Yachting Association who has a nephew that saw it on youtube.

Even more annoying than PMU if you ask me. Sounds like someone's butthurt and is now ranting about gear prices or about people who buy that stuff for that kind of money. Well... then don't buy it at all or buy somewhere cheaper like I do. Everyone can vote with their wallet. Supply and demand. It's that simple.

$998.99 (bar&lines + CL)
So this is the top end status symbol bar now. How about the range of bar prices? What is the low end new bar price shipped to you?

Honestly, I don't want a $1000.00 bar sitting in my car while I go in to pay for gas. So.....it won't be in my car....I will take it in there with me.......Or just cobble together a bar of my own with maybe a North CL, homemade bar, sailboat shop cleat, and Jerry brown flying lines with amsteel leader lines and depower line. So there is a workaround.

Not to mention that these prices (I admit that they are ridiculous) may reduce some crowding on the beach. Unfortunately, encouraging the use of worn out older gear may get some beaches banned, thus yielding no net reduction in crowding.

That sailing meme makes me want to quit sailing and take up sailing.

Is it hot right now to connect your click bar to your sonic race? And what colors give the best performance this summer?

In the 80s I used to race monohull sailboats, ones that planed. The only time it was fun was the start of the race, jostling for position with 8-9 other boats at the 2 minute mark. After that it was strategically boring, unless conditions were narly 20 plus knots.

"Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me..."
"Sailing takes me away to where I've always heard it could be, Just a dream and the wind to carry me"

As I read *some* of that, I was wondering if longwhitecloud is stuck at home, nursing an injury or something. Or maybe it's not windy there right now and he's getting fussy like the rest of us do when going through "wind withdrawals". ;) If so, get better/hope the wind blows soon, longwhitecloud! :)

Let's not forget that only 2019 gear can make your riding experience good. Anything older is so out of date.
