Happened at the weekend in Altona.
Luckily my first jump of the day nothing happened. Jumping to my weak right side the line broke when I was 2 meters in the air. Not sure if it happen going up or down. Landed in over a meter of water. The kite was of course looping out of control.
Pulled the safety which stopped the looping but the kite is now still powered as the lines are wrapped around the safety.
Grabbed the left strearing line and pulled the kite in.
The bar has maybe done 20 easy sessions on the foil 9 meter Boxer in 10 to 15 knots and less than 10 sesions on my 11m Orbit in 20 knots of wind.
Heavier rider 120kg but never had this happen to any other bars Slingshot, Liquid Force, Ozone and Duotone.
If it broken on that first jump I probably would have broken some bones landing on a shallow sand bar.
Reading other complaints about that line breaking and they are still selling the bar is a cause for concern.
Cezary if you need more info or the bar drop me a message.

: if someone was following it and is interested, here it’s from the latest email I got from the Australian Authorities investigating the matter of this catastrophic bar failure:
Department of Justice and Community Safety
” Due to the severity of this product failure, I will be forwarding your case to our product safety team for further assessment.”
