the strain can be quite severe if you do what I did way back in 2005,
Remember kite depower on the bar was still limited back then and flying a C kite was all about boosting, lots!
I took this to the extreme one day which knocked me out of kitesurfing for near on a year.
Out sailing in stiff winds and flat sea with my sailing buddy we egged each other on all afternoon to see who could boost continually without slowing down on landing and edging immediately and going large again and again,
maintaining maximum speed and height, the looser was the one who lost speed on the touchdowns.
So much fun, if a bit sketchy in the shallow water where it was flattest and where the speed was so much easier to maintain for maximum height and length of jump which helped with speed on landing.
However, as this was so exhausting we started to crash a bit, but I would not give up, but did not realize what was about to happen,
I wore myself out, completely, but still carried on,
my whole body was knackered, my stomach was really starting to burn, legs were getting very heavy and then it happened.
I landed heavily after one jump but tried to take off again anyways, as I edged hard for take off and started to lift my legs up,
I heard a big "loud" snap noise inside the body. SNAP! it was so weird as it sounded very loud, of course it was a snapping sound that only I heard.
it still makes we wince now as I recall the memory.
In agony I collapsed to the water, doubled up with pain in the stomach,
the water was shallow, kite was down, I was in a ball.unable to stand up,
my buddy released my kite and I crawled ashore.
that was the end of kitesurfing for me for near a year.
avoided an operation by taking it easy. and allowing things to repair.
took windsurfing up again as this was easy to do and helped to slowly get back up to strength and return to kitesurfing and jumping like a mad thing again but aware that I needed to stop whenever the burn ever returned.
