I have only one story that really fits, here it is again:
A guy with maybe a season of experience (but possibly not all in the same season, I’m not sure) came out and brought his sand screw anchor. Metal corkscrew, maybe 75cm. He launched ok and plowed around a bit, then went to land his kite with the screw anchor.
But he didn’t put the kite on its ear first.
Just hooked the rope from the anchor to his center lines and released from the chicken loop!
Kite was at at 11 or 12!!!
Then he tried to steer the kite, it got yanked looping. He let go.
Result: runaway kite across lagoon and over the beach dragging a big corkscrew.
I managed to catch the kite when it tumbled across the beach, no injuries. Luckily only a few people were around.
