Lou Wainman for Kiteboarding President.

The extra cost alone is beyond ridiculous.. $4000 for a carbon foil?! wtf!

Fight your way out of the Facebook bubble, those facebook f#3ing lowlife subhumans streamed a massacre, no one could get get them to stop it for half an hour (no hotline / emergency line and they talk of AI solving every problem - yes the AI talk solves a problem - for shareholders.. cheaper to talk by blinding the public with science. Humans answering a phone would have solved this problem. Don't support these f##ers.

$4000 for a foil or THE foil? what are you smoking? I am pretty sure you can get a decent carbon rig for under 2K in most parts of the world.. much cheaper if you don't mind used and a few scratches, again way cheaper if you don't mind non-carbon...I have sold my alu learning rig for $600 (board and foil) and it took some time... there are plenty of high end TTs that have higher price tag (than $600 new) and have worse performance (lowind/upwind/jump) than my learning HF rig...

aluminium ones weigh a tonne - even more momentum to chop you up.

$4k (was a real quote) , $2k.... My board cost me $26, from cashies.

Lou Wainman is most awesome.

There's some angry people in the world.

Does it really matter? I think not.

Listen to Carl Sagan and put life into perspective.




PS I did enjoy the "Carrot fuckers" burn.... I will definitely use that in jest.

What a lot of crap :lol:

I'm sure it was a real quote but you don't have to spend the much. J-shapes are mad popular.

Cash Converters = not even once. Pretty sure they're fencing stolen gear.
