Very clear shot footage that can be a text book example to learn what can go wrong in a kiteloop,next time if you encounter this situation again just try to pull the power rope above the bar to bring to kite up faster to get some lift power counter with gravity and momentum free fall force instead of locking your kite at one spot on the left like what we see in the video,i think it might helps also to bring the kite to the right at right amount so that lines tension will give some support power.Also more wind will probably helps when you can get more height so that the kite have enough time to go up to catch your free fall before you hit the water.It doesn't appears the wind was power enough in this video to make the water choppy.Stay cool, keep controlling the kite while getting the power shot horizontal is the greatest feeling you can get in kiteboarding.AndrewJMcGee wrote:Thanks folks! 4-6 is what i figured. I was just starting to feel it. Here is the clip.. watch as i fail to keep my body straight. Then i fail to pull the correct bar, once i am backward. Then i get body slammed, and was fuzzy and blurry for a sec till i got my self together. Notice i pull left bar, and just before impact i realize wrong side, and pull right maybe saving my ribs from worse. Once i was backward time stopped.
Or you would have broken your legs or fucked up your knees...AndrewJMcGee wrote:...I feel like if i had pulled right bar, and got the kite to 12 i would have spun around. I dont think i could have landed that one, but i think i could of saved my body this pain.

I got the same bump rib after a bad crash. I'm using a seat harness now.
Are you able to wear a seat harness again ?
