Re: A kitesurfer rescues two persons drowning - watch the vi

also my thinking and the reason i wonder why we don´t see kites being used by life guards. not all locations would suit as the best alternative, but in some a kite look really a good way to get near to the person who is in trouble on a blink of an eye being from a family with a long history of life...

Re: A kitesurfer rescues two persons drowning - watch the vi

after reading all these responses and thinking about it, I think what i would do is go back to shore, at 20mph shouldn't take more than 5 seconds, grab any flotation you can find, a cooler, a sup, a car seat, a large branch, an inflatable toy, whatever you can find, tow it back to the swimmer and l...

Re: A kitesurfer rescues two persons drowning - watch the vi

The video shown was an incredibly dangerous rescue and the only reason it worked is that the rescuer was much stronger than the victims. the kid - yes. not sure about the chick :D You might have to wait until they quit struggling in the water, drag them back after they are unconscious or nearly so....

Re: KOTA top 10

going for a side show while KOTA heats are running trying to steal attention is pretty lame, if this is what some are suggesting

Many legal and illegal immigrants come to the US and succeed because they recognize and value the relative opportunities available to them in the USA vs...

Re: Be careful with investments in Venezuela

A lot of these replies have a common theme: I don't agree with you, therefore you are a complete dumbass who is completely incapable of rational thought. As we are not likely to meet face to face I will be appalling rude, patronizing and do my best to publicly humiliate you. And, share the kite sto...
