Never heard of anywhere being closed down due to 1st party accident of kiter - in all of history.
Kiters mixing it up with 3rd parties is another issue entirely - eg public. not keeping buffer zone.. - even then there are very few reports of any third party injuries caused by kiteboarders also - kiteboarders are pretty considerate people generally I reckon, partly because they know you need to show respect to get respect.
This is why my opinion differs so greatly from RickI - the self proclaimed kiteboarding safety guru - he thinks a proactive database of kiteboard accidents is detrimental to him, as his local authorities may use it to close down spots. I however think it shows a proactive, responsible attitude that will help educate riders without having to read through 1000s of web pages where it is all available anyway as kiters are clearly so keen for others to learn/be educated from any possible mistakes made.
Rick I has a database - his his private, he will not make it available. He has a conflict of interest though, in that he does paid work for the courts from time to time based on this information - so I created an open source one - anyone can add to it and they sure have. It's not perfect but being open source anyone can add to it or take the data and use it themselves.
Its people's own choice if they want to open,read it and learn. There is no doubt though that good education saves life's.https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... 5Wnc#gid=0
