Mmmm....nice railey!
This is a man! look at the face?? wtf?
It's David Lee Roth!....................or Michael Bolton?
Come on guys show some respect, these are real people - you never had a bad angle in a photo? I hope you can do a raily as good as that to be be bagging her. Marine Sudre is a pretty damn good Sydney Kiter Gal and deserves a bit better. Anyway for my 2 cents - you can't go past this one of Sjoukje....

I have a lot of respect for Diamond Dave - but fair enough, not good karma bagging someone else - I apologise - wish I could railey as good as that and look as good in a two-piece.

I hate to point this out, but...many of these photos have made photography seem cool, and nature...but there's nothing here making kitesurfing look particularly great. In fact, by needing a chick (?) or a great nature shot to spice things up, it's looking more and more like the old cigarette ads, trying to associate a (possibly not so cool) product with good things so that some of the positive feelings people have about those things will rub of onto their perception of the product. Is there such a thing as a cool kitesurfing photo? Hey! How about Robbie Naish or Jason Polakow rippping up Jaws or Hookipa? Getting ridiculous air? Pulling off moves that people with decades of experience are still in awe of? Yeah, that'll work! Oh, wait, that's not kitesurfing... oops...

I was anticipating an intelligent, articulate reply, but this one far, far exceeds my expectations... ..."airush geoff", any time you need help tying your shoelaces, give me a call, brother!! BTW, I've developed something I call the "Zero-Intelligence Test". All you have to do to prove your lack of intelligence, confirm your homosexuality (nothing wrong with that) and declare kiting to be forever crap, is post the following:
"willy i think its time you put a real seat on that push bike of yours.... you have obviously damaged your brain by continual sitting on the bare seat post" ...I wonder who will fall into this carefully-laid trap?

Whale... nature... kitesurfing.... Isnt that what its all about? Being out there with nature. I think a photo that combines nature and kitesurfing together explains the essence and beauty of kitesurfing. I myself feel closer to nature when I kitesurf then doing any other activity. How can cigarettes even be compared to this??? All this biatching and whinning why not just post some pics?

No glamour shots here, just a more-or-less random grab from the seabreeze archives. An amateur photo, taken in Australia, not Maui! Height achieved through speed and control, not from a kite lifting the guy up! Years of experience required: More than you've had hot dinners, sonny! Wind: Pretty decent! (Yes it's grainy and the angle isn't so flattering and the camera obviously cost way less than $3000 and the background scenery isn't so pretty...better run to mommy)

So from that comment I take it that your musical taste is as regressive as your sporting activities. Rawk and Poles, how quaint!

Looks out of control, and I bet he smashed himself when he CRASHED back into the water! Air on a windsurfer just looks wrong, and the pics never show the 95% impending doom that follows approx 1-2 secs later. Cya and Goodwinds Steve McKitesonly
