Of course, he's selling, can't launch a kite on that rocky steep shoreline :o
Or you launch it on the lawn and side jump down to the water :roll:
(At least looks like the house level is quite high, good then Antarctica melts and water rises 60 meters)

Robby recently explained how he got where he is over the last 45 years.
Really enjoyed that interview. There are some great comments explaining, why we all love this so much, be it kiting, windsurfing, winging. For him these are really fun sports, the competitive element plays a minor role: "...this is not about one guy beating the other guy..." and "... I don´t want to play fucking golf, I want to go windsurfing..." :lol:

That part of the article was just mentioning how real estate in Hawaii had increased in value, and even in an area on the big island of Hawaii, another island, which has an active volcano.

Maui’s last eruption was over 200 years ago and on the other side of the island.
