I am using bits and pieces of a quote i recently read:
"When you live by the internet marketing sword...you die by it too"
Now my 2 cents
There is a lot of truth in that
Better watch out...there could be another camera on you from a "different vantage point"
Summary: Naples November 25th the V3 falls in and you have only yourself to blame..not the SUP
Cape Canaveral December 11th the V3 can't reverse launch on beach in 5kn
the V3 can't keep you riding in onshore 8kn winds
You could have saved that kite from getting wet and you know it
You messed up...not the board...or lines becoming slack.....excuses...excuses
I know going from starboard to port in a turn is not your strength...
....because you can't carve your turn...you have to step jibe it..(more acrobatic in supa LW)
During that lull when it was time to turn...(P.S. you ventured too far...you did not play safe)
...you should have "dropped yourself" in the water beside the SUP and kept the kite up by sining
While doing that with kite all you had to do is turn around that "barge" manually to the other tack
Wait patiently for a puff to water start and return to the beach like a champ
That low wind was spotty and full of holes....you knew that i hope
The most important thing for you to do was to" keep that kite flying" in that 4kn lull...
....no matter what....but unfortunately for you....you failed to do so..and it was caught on camera
Was the GoPro in your mouth somehow leashed around your neck in case of emergency......
....like if your kite was about to go down...and it was time to FOCUS on keeping the kite up instead
