Blackened, the short-tackers are a real problem, and it is amazing they don't realize the danger. I've talked to several kiters about this on the beach having seen them do it and while some react angrily, others have not realized the problem, and I also warned my two visiting friends. Once you start heading out, short of facing a disaster like a massive wave about to smash you, go all the way beyond the breaking outside waves, and same on the way in, go all the way to the shore. That way you are predictable and someone jumping can judge that they will miss you. The amazing thing is when they get upset that you nearly landed on them!
Anyway, today was my friend Tim's last day (what an amazing week he has had, lucky guy), so after a failed attempt at foiling at Big Bay, we returned to Kite Beach and pumped 11m for Ken, and 9m for Tim and I, me on surfboard, and they had a good session trying to refine their jumping skills (I well recall how much of a struggle I had timing the kite movement with hitting a ramp, let alone getting the landings reasonably smooth). We rode downwind to Big Bay where we ran out of wind so stopped for lunch, then the breeze filled in around 2 and we had a great ride down to Holbaai. Along the way we saw penguins, seals, dolphins, and a sunfish. A great way to end a trip.
