That's a crazy video. :thumb:

It makes me wonder if kite racing could go the way of team road cycling, where teams of kiters divide up responsibilities to enable a single team member to win. An important responsibility would go to the "terminators" who have the job of taking out key competitors by intentionally tangling their lines at the start of the race. :o Let's hope it doesn't come to this.

Kevlar lines might be good for weeding out the competition? New sport Kite fight racing?

At least here there are a lot's of kite,I have seen line tanglo saturday and sunday to my local spost whit not so mant kite on the air.People just don't follow basic rules like kiter upwind keep kite high and the one donwind keep it lower,no ,people is riding and don't pay attention to nobody just like they are alone.Same thing off the water,people launch the kite and start talking with friend and kite at 45° ,who care for other people that want to go out
Hopefully nobody get hurt why it would suck to loose the spot for few idiot's.

Only a very small number of sailors tangle up their masts like this.
