      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.

From the Front Page -"If there’s one thing ISAF’s Olympic indecision did, it lit a huge fire under the kiters to get their shit – both organizationally and technically -- together so there’s no question they’re ready for the 2020 games.":


I found it expectionally funny that the first time Kite Boraders are included in Sail Melbourne which is taking place right now, that the protest list is so big!


Seems there are more protests than races being held! Check it out: http://www.yachting.org.au/sa/protest/?ID=46026


Maybe on water umpires in the Kite Boarding Olympics when they get there will sort it out, but I think applying sailing rules to kites is a bit of a stretch.


Any comments?

if you do not apply the RRS to kiteboarding, you are saying "kiteboarding is NOT sailing" thank you
