Please do not confuse your personal comfort level with all of us. Bummer for Theo, but also bummer for others that have lost their lives in deeper water in safer conditions. The are called accedent, not on purposes....

Good luck to all the ladies!!!!!!! GO GIRLS!!!!

I have a cousin that is a paraplegic as the result of a sports accident.
It's not about my personal comfort level, it's about respect for people joining and enjoying the sport.

There is way safer 3 ft deep water only a handful of feet away...

Michelle told me that the video was shot in a rush, only one day to get it in.
She normally would not do risky shallow water moves.
Sounds like a very cool and smart young lady to me. :thumb:

Yes -- Cool, Smart, And talented !!
In her profile it indicates that she continues with her education
along with the many hours to practice Kite Boarding.
She may not be winning "Most Influential Girl Kitesurfer 2011"
but given her propensity towards advancement in this sport
I'll assume that this young lady will be Quite well known in the
Very near future !!

Way back when ...
I Slammed into the cliff's at Torry Pines from 450ft on a Hang glider,
didn't have a chute that day for back-up. 1/4 million Bucks Gone !!

Slammed into the Dry lake bed near Jean Nv, four years ago,
1/2 million bucks Gone, cost to dice two legs off
((and they wouldn't even let me Keep the bones for my fireplace mantle)) !

I Still Hang glide, and Still "LOVE" it !!

Flying Hang Glider at Torry pines :

My point is that I'd rather go in doing something i Really like; than
go out with a heart attack because the alcohol & potato-chips made
my Cholesterol too high, while just safely watching TV as a recluse, on
a lonely dark living-room chair !!
