Not much to say about the kiting part...

But I've always thought a pleasure yacht with wireless PlayStation controllers would be cool...

Hmmm

Lucky not to have smashed yourself badly when you looped it. You had a very good day.

Why didn't you pull your chicken loop?

I didn't think about it because I have never had to pull it before.

You mean you panicked you froze up?

No I've never pulled it before.

He's lucky he's not dead. Didn't seem like he learned anything either.

Not the smartest cookies in the biscuit bin.

Kind of unusual because most young people i know that grew up like this are more clued up.

Did they just sail from from fiji to aussie during cyclone season? W t f ! It's all making sense now....
