Kgb,

Thanks for sticking with your attitude on this issue. Again, of all the thanks I have given for those proving my point whom I either agree with or disagree with, you are the one I wish I could thank you twice for this post!

Having your opponent prove your point and fit into the exact mold to which some others have said does not exist - priceless!

My attitude on this thread or to you has nothing to do with my kiting or the courtesy I show on the water to others

You drawing direct comparisons and pigeon holing people to receive your on water justice is what irks.

Never seen you before, so I could not say you exhibit poor behavior. That said, I believe you do have an increased likelihood of that, given your position on the subject. What I can say, with an extremely high degree of certainty, is that you would be near impossible to reason with. My hope is that I am wrong in the previous two statements, and that we could have that beer or 3. :beer: :beer: :beer:

Given I haven’t stated my position on “the subject”

How can you form any kind of valid opinion on how I kite in the company of others?

I’m on Maui, I’ve spent a lot of time here enjoying windy kite beach :cool2:

I think there’s something many people simply don’t understand - when you pass closely, the downwind kiter should lower their kite!!! If you do that then 2 riders can pass closely & don’t have to break off their tack.

Can’t tell you how many times I’ve passed someone upwind & they have their kite at 11:00. I think people just don’t know.
i'm also on maui...
and in spite of all the kiteschools and tourists at cloud/kite beach.. imo, people on the water here in general are MUCH more respectful and courteous than i'm used to..

baja mexico is different maybe because there is so much room and more an effort to get there... but compared to europe of cabarete... folks are super chill.

Cool but nothing to do with “the subject” so again proof or stfu?

Or are you just hurt I won’t and 99% of the forum won’t go for a beer with you? Are you lonely? Do you need someone to talk to on those cold snowy nights?

I only engaged after your lies about the scene at my home beaches, something backed up by other posters who contradict your version of the Maui kite scene.

Kgb, YOU.....ARE.......MY.....OPRA!

Can I ask if you think you may be representative of the attitude on Maui's more well known beaches?
