      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.

    windsurfing, after years of slowboating on a keelboat.
  1. What should I look for in buying a windsurfer?

    Kiting in crowds does not mix, was at Orient bay in St Martin's last spring .It's a crowded beach , tons of people , swimmers, etc a few windsurfers and... Lots of Kiters. The scene was downright dangerous. A local kiter said they were close to being banned. The good kiters had issues launching and landing, yelling at people people walking across lines or under them coming down.(spectra cuts) If that wasn't bad enough newb kiters were dragging into moored boats. It was pandemonium lol... A new saying "a kiter out to sea is worth 50 on the beach" Kiting us a high powered high flying sport, but there are more then a few Yahoo's out there, who know nothing of right of way or sharing beach space for that matter that is why it's banned so many places.
  2. Learning to windsurf/kitesurf on the East Coast

    Kiting is by far easier to learn just make sure you bring Tylenol advil etc etc ...You can get slammed easy
  3. Sailing Anarchists Affected by Cancer

    I had been getting bad flank pain when i turned 30, food not tasting very good ( and it was cristmas best food of the year!!) exhausted after having mediocre workouts. but I had lost my job, and the fact i had just turned 30 and lost my job, and was feeling down and out and out in general, I figured it was life just getting me down. a few months later the pain was so severe, I could not sit, or drive . I worked in the hosptial and asked a few docs they figured it was a kidney stone. So I had an ultrasound, boom cancer. took them a few weeks to figure out what kind it was.I figured well, like many do ...i was a goner.... so six months of chemo and being a Q ball . but all in all having woked and still working in the hospital i figured i have been so lucky. Its been 10 years, clean bill of health . Now my dad has inoperable stomach cancer, my uncle was diagnosed with the same 1 month earlier than my dad am best frineds brother has the same cancer as i had. its been a bad year. so i sail my ass off, well windsurf mainly keelboating is too serious i cant handle it seems so silly to get worked up over something so, UNSERIOUS. at times
