... this happened to a mate,,, turned up to beach and saw mate rigging up at another spot, about 2 km's upwind so decided to go check it out. Slowly jumped back into the car and as I'm driving around I meet up with him half way and he's in a panic. He didn't make sense, something about 'new' and 'kite' and 'pump' and 'waaaaa' or something to that affect so I turned around to see what's up, I follow him.
Get back to beach carpark where I was just at and I see him jump out of his car, trip, get up then high-tail it to beach.
I hurry up a bit and just as I get to the clearing I see him strolling towards, hands on hip, kite sitting on the rocks, deflated. I get to him, he's standing there looking at the limp kite, hands on hips, standing over it and I say, whose kite, I don't recognise it????
Yeah it's mine, the new one!
Same as posts above, kite got away from pump leash falling off only he chased it for nearly a kilometer before he gave up and turned around to get his car. Damn thing slid nearly 2km only it stopped on some very sharp rocks and coral. Hundreds of little tears in the LE, brand new barely 1 hour old never flown kite.
