its interesting that people want to comment on someone's stupidity and call him an idiot when you have such a lame life that you're sitting around saying horrible things about someone who's in bad shape. may not have been a smart decision, but think about all the times when you've done something stupid and been lucky.

Regardless... he still is a dumbarse. I am sure if you were down here in a potentially dangerous storm with him you would be out there flying your kite too!
What do you do for your circus act? Bungee jump off of the Washington Monument? Cuz it's radical and cool dude? Get lost!

Kitesurfing is quite fun and safe if you know whats up? For exmaple: dont go out in a onshore wind. This guy should have a. Not gone out. b. Punched out immediately. The correct answer is A. But B. would also work if you have the presence of mind to NOT YANK ON THE BAR RATHER PUSH THE EASY RELEASE CHICKEN LOOP. Thats why they call it chicken.
