Really Toby? Who needs a 3 min video to learn how to land a kite? Oh! and duplicated in two different sections of the forum (Videos & Info).

IMO these topics don't add any value to KF.

I have found that it is possible to not read a post or watch a video that I am not interested in.

Perhaps you should give that a try?

You bin kiting since 2006 , and i bin kiting since 2003 ; we
both , could have learned a bunch from that video, when
we first started kiting !! :thumb:

There are beginners, asking questions a LOT on this forum ;
and without beginners, (this sport will die) like hang gliding
is doing now. :(

exactly Bille!

Many people search online for help...and Google fines the forum postings.

Posted twice because the INFO forum is exactly that: Info ! For all levels...important info and videos to make people better and safer kiteboarders.

well I think on a forum this size , and world wide as it is , it's good to think of all levels of kiter's , and ther'e safety , so nice one toby .in this sport you can hurt yourself really quickly with a split second wrong move especially if you hit the beach hard

Why it is important to pass also knowledge like that along?

This is why: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2403705
