Youngy was kite Skiing with the Kite Ski system developed by Corey Roessler in the 90's long before the first inflatable kites made their way to Australia. He truly is the grandfather of kitesurfing in Australia.

Loathe instructors like that. Why am i giving this asshole money again? Shame the reputation never gets to begginers soon enough.


Where are we drawing the line at kitesurfing exactly? Does my landboarding all of a sudden mean i was one of the first kitesurfers now?
Bollocks i hated kitesurfers back then and allways will

causehecan , can you just f-off. I've stopped reading this forum of late because of the constant crap you write. Shame I only recently opened it to find more dribble from you. This topic is not about you or your opinion on instructors but about a top bloke with a great history and contribution to the kiting sport. Your diatribe is destroying this forum and mostly not appreciated. Just pleased you don't contribute to the other forums in which comments being made are sensible, well thought through and relevant to the actual posts being made.

I should **** off because of drill sargent style sport instuctors?


Or because i think kitesurfers wear fast sunglasses?


Your not making much sense. Go read my posts in anything other then general.
Or even read this one the very one your crying about. I said i loathe instructors like that ala that teaching method. Then i said does my landboarding mean i was one of the first kitesurfers? Cause apparently doing things that arent kitesurfing is same as doing kitesurfing but only when its convenient.

All your posts over the years have been like silky smooth mothers milk. Your an angel and i hope someone blesses your little white cotton socks

Wow causehecan lots of green thumbs again, what a surprise lol.

Ian was an X SAS soldier and super strict on safety and delivering clear concise instructions. A great instructor who taught a lot of the early crew and really got the show on the road here. I was just exaggerating his direct style and the fact I needed to grow a pair. Caught up with him at the last windfest which just blew my mind, I owe that guy.

The whole term keyboard warrior is so apt here causehecan. I know shi house and those of us that do on here would love to see you face to face with him and see how many words flow out of your mouth and for how long.

Honestly causehecan in the true spirit of friendly humour, you would appreciate the picture in my mind - if you met him in person. Just to be clear - I'm not talking violence here - it would be more like a silent Charlie Chapman movie as your mouth stutters and stops, you'd laugh your head off and buy him a beer.

The reason they teach these methods in the military is because after 2000 years of battles they found it works. Soft Australia might not like it but old Australia grew up with it.

@Eppo he said left right? Have you any right sense left?

^^^ First time I've chirped up on this, but mate, you're truly acting the tool and I, like many others, am sick of your crap. You're not funny, you're not participating within the spirit of the forum and I wonder how many of us would have to post similar comments about your behaviour before you'll step back from the keyboard and reconsider your approach ... ?

I have to agree with the rest,. I was pretty dedicated to my seabreeze until recently, its been a struggle.

One piece of credit I will give to causeheccan is the dedication and preparation to being a cock. Multiple logins all set up years ago to green thumb every post,... causehecan was set up almost a decade ago... thats some serious psychopathic planning. My guess is its lofty and after years of red thumbs abuse sat back and planned his revenge on us all,.. we really only have ourselves to blame.

causehecan your comments are becoming not funny... eppo is right Ian is a legend and a pioneer not just on the west coast... kiteboarding in australia needs to thank him... Guys from victoria that did the wa summer pilgrimage we were blown away by Ian and his knowledge and his passion for the sport.

I love all the theories.

Laurie can prove in a heartbeat i have no other accounts or logins or can *green thumb* myself.

Fact is i have a fair bit of knowledge experience and plenty of opinions and im not indentured to any company or brand so i can say exactly what i believe on anything.

You want to get angry about things taken out of context when its written literally in black and white infront of you for full accountability go CRAZY but outside your circle. The other 90% of readers. Not just now but in 1? 3? 5 years to come will find these posts by searching a topic and they wont be reading them with your clearly emotional state.

I dont write for you. I dont write for now. I write for the future

Breathe

selling wolf tickets and talking sideways out of my neck is just as common on a jobsite as it is in prison. End of the day you dont want to get fired and you dont want to add more time.
Im human i get scared when im threatened. But if i believe something im sure as hell going to say it especially on a topic im so passionate about. Im like "on the spectrum" passionate about kites. So i like to do my own research about everything i believe reguarding them.

And that includes instructing.

Every tradesman here has been an apprentice and every one of them knows the difference between being yelled at and told to work faster and threatened at work and the opposite where you have a good genuine boss whose wanting to teach you the trade and apreciates you being there. Its called a relationship. And the army drill instructor style is definitely not the way to go for most students. (Keep in mind this is a GENERALISATION which covers everyone not targeting your boyfriend that seems to have upset you all go read what i posted again and learn not to fall for the strawman someone posted afterwards)


Now if you dont mind im going to take my serious pants back off and let you all know my real name.

Its "2 dicks"

Cause you cant be that silly with only one.

It's great if you have a bunch of knowledge and independent opinions. However, that's not what annoys people.
What's annoying is your tone in expressing your knowledgeable opinions and your refusal to respect either the opinions of others (many of whom are plenty experienced) or the norms and goodwill of the community. If everyone was as dismissive of others as you are, the forum would stop working. In this sense you're a parasite on the goodwill that others have established over many years.

Maybe some of the jagged edges will be smoothed off by time, and you might even come down and join the human race and find out that being a regular schmuck among other regular schmucks ain't so bad ...

You might be surprised that there is a majority of forum readers who feel exactly the same way about the inane dribble pouring into every thread, but realise that giving attention to a clearly disturbed individual is exactly what he craves.

Most of of us glean some useful facts and occasionally contribute a reasoned opinion in the interests of contributing to the sport.

We lurk and try to ignore serial trolls.

But we are thinking exactly the same way about the hijacking of the forum by a delusional narcissist.

So I will choose to not be silent in this instance

There is panic in the village

Its all come down to this

Im some young dude who doesnt respect the elders and claims they are inexperienced.

Boo hoo

I stopped competeing in kitesurfing after being beaten by a 14 yr old who could hardly write his own name.

Do i demand respect from him? No.
I respect him.

If you have to expect respect and be upset when you dont get it. News flash. You dont deserve it. And if, like myself you get beaten by someone younger? Good. Enjoy it. And do what i did. Take up a sport where people die alllllllll the time. And theres no fairy wairy nonsense on IVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR 50 YEARS RESPECT ME cause guess what? That homeboy? Hes dead. And ironicly we respect him. Call him an eagle etc. Its kinda weird really anyways

Know your limits and perform to the best of your ability. Its not a team sport.

You talk about some upper echelon of forum users who dont like me? Many of you MUST KNOW who i am? Who is he why is he saying these crazy things.

Then acuse me of being narcissistic when literally half the threads are created BY YOU about ME am i creating threads about you? Am i calling you all manner of swear words and threatening violence? Am i suggesting your weaker in person then on a computer (i dont even own a keyboard by the way thats why im so adamant about this rich text editor)

Nope

All i did was say i didnt call myself a real kiteboarder until i started unhooking. And i dont consider anyone else who isnt as one either. Guess what. 30 years ago there wasnt any hooks to hook into so homeboy must have ridden unhooked. Can he still do it now? I dont know never heard of him could be deadly. But your all much more interested in createing a lynch mob because shock horror i had another opinion, drill sargent style teachers are **** teachers. Rabble rabble rabble.

I fail to see what the issue is honestly. You keep goading this topic of "it doesnt fit the spirit of the forum" your createing that. Its you. Not me. Im just defending myself or explaining my opinions.

Trying to get me band on a technicality by baiting me into conversations is funny.

Honestly i think if you really want seabreeze to "return to normal" just listen to what i have to say. You might learn something

Back on topic
Kitesurfers have become a bunch of dangerous flogs because there's less instructors like Ian.
Any causehethinkshesthesheet can teach themselves and their armtoright boyfriend to kite.
What's seriously lacking is etiquette and (un)common (needs to be drilled into your thick skull) sense...
I'm pointing at you here fatso, you useless prick
