We filmed a kite beach for 8 hours ... crashes

We set up our camera to film the kitesurfing beach in Cayo Guillermo, Cuba for a full day. What did we catch on camera? Check out the video and see if you can spot the mistakes. (Thankfully no one was hurt!)

unbelievable what mistakes are being made...90% of kiters have no clue about safety.

A must for everyone to be safer is the safety video I made:

People need to pump their kites up properly! I mean they need to generally just get a clue, but they also need to start pumping their kites up. Just watching that invert gave me a groin pull.

I see the results of some Seriously , Piss-Poor training !!!

There IS a way to launch your kite ; where Ya don't need to rely
on the launcher to check your stuff, (you can do that Yourself).
Ya still use a launcher; but his ONLY job is to keep the kite
still, while you hook in.

“I see the results of some Seriously , Piss-Poor training !!!”


Or no training at all. I see several that have to be first timers just going for it. No wonder access gets shut down in metropolitan areas etc.

Theres no way I would go anywhere near a place like that. Im too spoiled by having miles of beach to myself to settle for being around a debacle like that, which is probably just another average day there.

The video made me angry. What a bush of inconsiderate muppets.
Hopefully this does not represent the average beach.
At my local muppetry is very and far between. But amusing when it happens.
