where did this neck strain stuff come from?
In straps you don't get neck strain, in boots your neck can be sore for weeks with a heavy crash. The board & boots function as an anchor stopping you in your spot. In straps you slide out of your straps and gradually come to a stop.

Re: That guy is dangerous

Why would anyone not wear a helmet while climbing? Rocks fall all the time. Do you climb? Not everybody every time wears helmets. In sport climbing helmet off is more common than helmet on. The same in kiting. It depends on the conditions. For me, non sense to wear a helmet in 12 knots. Chances of ...

Re: That guy is dangerous

Smashed my first Gath helmet in a crash that almost knocked me out (thanks Helmet), and it's saved me from stitches I reckon 3 or 4 times in 7 years of kiting. Crashed thousands of times wearing the Gath helmet including what is arguably the most dangerous positions for neck injury in a helmet, fee...

Re: That guy is dangerous

Full safety gear while having no awareness, rigging to big for skill, first time in the waves with tons of other people around, not looking when turning, etc, etc. 'That guy is dangerous'. This is a perfect example of a simple, but complete, breakdown in basic logic. Let me re-write the above to pl...

Re: That guy is dangerous

"look out for the guy with a helmet and seat harness because he is a kook noob". Total kook^ ^Probably just finished his first lesson^ ^Give this one a wide berth, definitely not safe on the water^ The KING of all KOOKS!!! Helmets make perfect sense in foiling because of the high risk of hitting a ...

Re: That guy is dangerous

"Link between using safety gear and being a kook does not exist." Nothing say kiteboarding safety like helmet and impact vest, checking an anemometer.. all sign of a highly experienced safety conscious rider. I would use a low buffer zone around these riders of about 4-5km. Let's continue this disc...

Re: That guy is dangerous

Looking cool is not what I care about, it's that they're uncomfortable and cause more pain/injury when crashing.
