#1 Aug 23, 2008 say you are perfectly capable of handling a tropical storm and that next time you will wear a helmet....HAVE YOU SEEN THE FLIPPING VIDEO....YOU WERE NOT HANDLING IT AT ALL AND A HELMET WOULD NOT HAVE HELPED YOU. IDIOT!!! YOU MAKE ALL KITE SURFERS LOOK STUPID.

What a moron. You are the laughing stock of the country. Sounds like you had a brain bruise long before you got to the beach. Take up knitting with your mom,its safer and more in line with what you can handle. Stooge.
Just sayin

Stupid is as stupid does... What's next, Kevin? Jumping off the Eiffel Tower without a helmet?

I hope he has insurance and our tax dollars don't go to pay for his hospital stay and recovery. This was pure stupidity. But then again "natural selection" does have its place!
