First, Please do not turn this into a rant nor point fingers.
I'd just like to make a comment on general beach etiquette. Please just remember that if someone says to you that the beach you are trying to launch from is not a beginners beach that it is because they are concerned about both your well-being and those around you. They should only be saying this to you if they noticed that you are having problems of some sort indicating that you are a newer kiter. Do not take it personally, and please remember that it is out of concern and not from being territorial. On the flip side, if you are the one making the statement, just remember to be nice in your tone to not be harsh or hurtful. No matter what, telling someone that their skill level doesn't seem to meet the requiremetns for the beach they are trying to kite on is going to hurt as that person is just trying to get a session in.
I was talking to some folks over the weekend and it seems like in a lot of other places, kiters are very territorial and downright rude to other kiters that aren't "locals". I have never had that experience here in MA from MKiters so found it surprising. For people coming in to this area from outside, they might be expecting that kind of attitude so will be on their defensive. Hopefully they find the masskiting board and can learn about us before hitting the beach so to be a little more chill / relaxed.
Anyway, remember.. If you dont recognize the people on the beach you're on.. Say hello and introduce yourself.
PS: Happy monday.. Is it friday yet?
