reminds me to look for the footage of 2 kiters stuck together - spreader bar to spreader bar deathlooping up the beach while a 4wd does donuts around them...

I don't understand the fuss, sailing is as safe as any other sport!

look at these people who are deadlooping after they use quick release, they have leash attached to harness at the back, this is crazy stupid practice you should always attach leash on front of harness where you can use it when kite pulls you hard

I strongly agree.

People just don't get warned. Should be everyone's task who knows.
