Re: beginner death in france, detailed by the teacher.

Ah, Richard..you nit-pick my friend. I actually apologised to you for taking what could be construed as an 'opposite side' primarily because I understand and accept your p.o.v. I also agreed with you insofar as a leash does save time when you are learning (and thereafter if one chooses to continue u...

Re: beginner death in france, detailed by the teacher.

Interesting leash discussion, and valid arguments on both sides. I learnt in 2004 on the South coast of England. The school used reel leashes (no option given and no info about how they could be dangerous). Helmets also used. The reel leash definitely saved time in the learning process, and I wanted...

Went last year at beginning of Dec. Water was warm. Got wind 6 days out of 7, 15-25 knots cross/cross-on every day. Was out mostly on my 15. I weigh 90 kgs. Beach was way crowded, lots of local riders with no respect. Get out the back on the reef, that's where the fun is to be had. Avoid the shallow...

Slingshot

Elda, you can't just say the guy in Oz is 'wrong'. All he's done is post his experience of SS...that it differs from yours doesn't make him wrong. I've been riding SS for a few years and have found the kites pretty durable, barring bladder problems on both my '04 Fuels. Although I live in the UK, I ...

So what happens in the scenario where there's no lifeguard - just you and the 'dumb shit'. Let him/her drown, or attempt to save them and risk a lawsuit?

Steady on there Delta. Is it what Mr Donovan said or where he's from that has so got your goat? His post lacks tact and is definitely a bit 'have a go hero' but I tend to agree with bits of it. To be thinking about whether you're going to be sued or not in a life and death situation really is a bit ...

Inevitable...

Kite Beach is an accident waiting to happen. I was there for a week last December and would not go back. It's super crowded, and the locals have ZERO respect for other people be they kiters or non-kiters. Far too many un-hooked tricks being done 10 yards from shore. Also, there was a complete reluct...

Hi Rick, Yeah, that's exactly what happened. There was definitely enough time for me to have hit the QR before the kite took off through the window. I'd say it 'hesitated' at the edge of the window for 2-3 seconds before making its move through the window to the other side. However I'm not sure this...

Happened to me about 18 months ago in Margate UK, when I launched a kite that had been rigged by a (more experienced) friend. As it launched I knew it wasn't flying right, but didn't immediately understand why, or have any inkling as to what was most likely to happen next. It was about 25 knots cros...
