Hi dazed,
looks scary, but you seem to be in perfect control at all times.
My biggest nightmare is to get washed by a powerful wave and get tangled in my lines.

Can you give some advice here how to act in such conditions to always get pulled out of the wave nicely like you show in that vid? Really great how you get pulled out of the water by your kite even in very powerfully breaking, large waves.
What was the wind direction in your video? Offshore or side? Due to your leash I guess at least partly offshore.

I know that the kite has to be steered against the wave, in general. But apart from that I´m clueless.
I´m mainly surfing in side to side-onshore wind with fully onshore waves.

Thanks!

That is my board and someone removed? the grip off the back :lol:

And yes I have had a hit to the head, it was a only smallish cut that super glued back together. But I'm all to aware of the risks of kiting with a leggie/leash.

But at that wave your board goes on the rocks at lowtide.

Nice, I like the way you are in control when you wipe out. I play in the surf a lot and get spun and have to let go of the bar.

Looks scary. Have you considered taking off the board leash ?

This is insane! So cool. Looks like a lot of fun. But I dread the leash... not a chance, not risking my face!

nice Rob! Got some beatings there!

Agree...the leash looks so scary! And which what speed the board flies towards you...

Not that you need an advice, but maybe when you feel tension in the leash and it unloads...protect the back of your head with your arm.

I do it when a "wave" washes me and I loose my TT...don't want that thing to hit my head.
