Thanks for that. Some really great shots, I think that just attaching the kite in the front would be the first option.
After some friends of mine were out with Don Montague (him actually stuck to the boat when it was upside down) and they after the boat turned upside down and they were stranded at Jump City in Kailua Bay at dusk / night (maybe a mile) from shore. They were finally towed in by a fellow kiter that were wondering why they didn't come in....
I have decided on some requirements.
A. Must be able to release kite.
B. Kite must have safety
C. must be able to auto release kite if we should fall out.
D. I am sure as hell going to wear my friggin' impact vest.
E. I will not do this in the dusk.
The guy who owns the boat's girlfriend broke her back while riding the boat..they hit a pole at high speed. The boat is fast, but the tip digs in when the speed increases over a certain speed. By attaching the kite in the front we can keep it from doing that...but I am guessing we'll meet some other obstacles before that happens. We'll take it step by step
