Twice last week I encountered "masked" kiters on the water in The Gorge.

WTF?

O.K., I hadn't thought of UV protection, but maybe that was it. They were wearing cloth masks with eye and nose holes. One guy was just wearing cloth over mouth and nose like a bandito.

I have seen this recently too and they are not masks but are actually soiled women's panties. Apparently it is the latest in kite boarding fashion. First it was board shorts over the wetsuit and now soiled women's panties worn over the head. I heard that it started in Japan and is now all the rage in the US. I heard that they are even going to install these vending machines at the Event Site.

Dang.... finally a good reason to switch to the dark side. Do these panties come used and will they be available at the swap meets?

Now that's some funny stuff! However, I've seen women wearing these masks too! Are they the same for women, or do the make a Jockey style version for the ladies?
