      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. Calibrating the autopilot?
  2. I thought I would throw in my 2 cents. I grew up racing sailboats, and while it's kinda fun if you have a good one design fleet, once I started kitesurfing, sailboats are just seem like a huge hassle. Kiting is really fun and easy to travel with and set up. There were 200+ kites out on the weekend of the 4th, from kids doing sick tricks, lots of old men, many women, and foilers racing around, one guy I spoke with covered 71nm in like 2 1/2 hrs!. Then a nice social scene at the beach. I've been used to pushing sailboats as hard as I can, but the kite has so much potential, you often have way more available than you want to use. It changes your whole attitude towards that zen space between the water and the wind, and really leaves you wanting more. Most recently, I bought a boat as a house to take me to great spots, I tried racing it, that wasn't fun, but I did like the social aspect. If you had a yacht club with a good launch and good wind conditions, I bet you'd see some people become kiting members. Kiting is certainly not perfect, besides all of the things that can go wrong, you can't get laid on a kiteboard, while with the big boat there does seem to be ladies interested in a sail.
  3. Thank you, we are really enjoying them
