There appear to be some power line supports on the bridge structure just to the left of the kite. If you hit a power line, there's a chance you'll knock out power to part of the electrical system. If you do that in most areas, you're putting launch and/or kiting sites at risk of closure or restrictions. On land, the risks of restrictions might not be as high??? But, even so, it begs the question. How did a rider hang his kite across those lines?

Let’s thank Dimitri again for excluding Pea Island from downwinders options?

you can hardly see that bridge, they should have markings on it and a sign that says Bridge... maybe then it would be easier to see
