      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. Douses on a 105

    Spread then ease. Don't hold it in tight. Been doing this for a long time. If you never bring the clew back, you're greatly increase the likelihood of a twist or three.

    that's.... impressive... are you sure nothing was disconnected?... A simple twist will be avoided on the set if you just spread the clews (ok tack and clew) . I've watched perfectly packed kites go up twisted because the trimmer was too afraid to pull the sheet back. But to invert from inside to outside - i can't picture it lol. Not even taking the halyard off?

    That Nordic finish was great. She pulled deep for that last bit of power. Didn't think she'd get back in front. Vonn's run was beautiful to watch. Super smooth, tight, and in control.

    I always prefer the sewer gets on deck and hikes for a bit before going back to run tapes. At best, it gets them on the rail at a critical part of the race and if it was a perfectly clean drop they can stay there. At worst, they might have to work a little faster (wait, that still sounds like a win....) and if we're getting close to the top mark i can bang on the hull to let them know we're close - scaring the shit out of them just like all those other asshole bowmen did to me....

    little experience on a 105, but my gut says one on bow, one in the hole... it's such a small kite. Mast guy at the ready in case shit goes pair shaped. At worst, mast guy helps with the first part of the drop but quickly goes aft.
  6. seriously, cool, and ambitious if totally misguided use of time:

    She had zero fucks to give and put up very fun run to watch.
  8. 2018 Winter Olympics!

    Wow what a first run by Chloe
  9. 2018 Winter Olympics!

    it's almost as if they want to push the agenda of the country NBC represents in a competition that is focused on individual metals won in representation of a country... During the Weymouth olympics BBC did nothing but wax romantic about Ben Ainsley. You'd be watching the 49er's around the bottom mark with some country not england in first and all of a sudden the announcer's would say "you know who had a good leeward mark rounding today? Brett Favre Ben Ainsley." Point is, of course the announcers are biased.

    me too, kermit, me too.
  11. 2018 Winter Olympics!

    the womens slopestyle last night was painful to watch. That cold wind was like hitting a brick wall for them. Was cool to see Anderson try to take a victory run but was also happy to see her bail out of it rather than taking a chance on wrecking.
  12. Miami to Havana Sleigh Ride Thread

    i'll be there. Hey Mark, what gear should i pack? (obviously i'll be taking the Hot Stuff shirt you made for us a couple years ago!)
