Kitemares and how to avoid them ... (kiteboard accidents explained)

Postby Toby » Sat Aug 17, 2019 12:24 pm

This explains 7 different kiteboarding accidents in detail. Hopefully learning from these will help people avoid the mistakes of the past.
Thanks so much to all of the uploaders. It's not easy to show the world your worst moments, but your clip may well save someone's life. Power kites are complex, powerful and often counter-intuitive - your best way of staying safe is to take plenty of lessons.

-Kitemare 1: Center lines knotted on bar.

-Kitemare 2: Tropical storm.

-Kitemare 3: Gusty wind.

-Kitemare 4: Steering line wrapped on bar.

-Kitemare 5: Jump with accidental kiteloop.

-Kitemare 6: Suicide leash drags kiter.

-Kitemare 7: Death-loop with bar hooked on harness.

Great video. I would say one thing that the video never mentioned. Practice your QR once a week.
