Dimitri, why didn't you loop the kite to get away from the boat? Wasn't it possible?
Good question Toby. I was going to KiteLoop my kite when I saw I was landing on the boat but then realized there was another boat anchored further down. So I decided to take the beating and whatever happens happens.
But then I was very lucky when I got dragged on the water because I missed the other boat by at least 10 feet.
