What do you mean by "you people"? Race has NOTHING to do with it.....stupid people come in all colors and I HATE them all!
Tell you what oops....the next time there's a racist post concerning a black, Hispanic or any other minority - let's see how offended you are. Guess what....you won't be......you and most of the fine white people who frequent these threads only get offended if the racist isn't white. If you think I'm wrong....jump on the next thread concerning a minority.....observe the number of people (who "hate all stupid people") that denounce the racist statements that are made...it won't be anything to observe. If you or others say that those types of comments should be ignored....then you should have ignored my original post....point proven!

I am a friend and neighbor of Kevin. He is a very nice guy and a software designer by profession. He's been waiting for a good breeze for months. His neighbors and girl friend are devastated by this horrible accident. The video horrified me. Yes he is full of bravado by being a kite surfer and yes, he should not been out, but to think it's "funny" or "worth a chuckle" is just plain cruel and mean spirited.
Get real Capt. He is a moron without regard for reality. Anyone who would do something like this at 26 is a lifetime loser. Hopefully this experience will turn him around.
It's a good thing that Capt. Ron's buddy didn't slam into someone while flying through the air. I guess "Mr. Nice Guy" was too stupid and full of bravado to see which way the wind was blowing and to realize that if a kite could pick carry you during normal winds, that a 60 mph wind would carry you up and toward the direction it was blowing...at 60 mph. The dumb-ass never thought to look downwind to see where he would end up.
Nice or not, there is no excuse for stupidity and lack of concern for consequences to others.
He's an inconsiderat moron.

You cut and pasted your comment from Mr. Miyagi, Dr. Suess or Friedrich Nietzsche?
I know I have seen it someplace else. This is a serious yet unfortunate situation that this young man has encountered. Please be more original with your posting.
I don't think the posters answer to you. If a guy wants to use quotes, so be it. At least he was creative enough to find one...unlike you.

Funny...the news reported that there were gusts of 60mph. But then, a doper like you wouldn't have noticed. Too bad your buddy didn't off himself doing his little kite trick. You should try it.
