Kp,

I am sorry that you were injured. It sounds like you have recovered which is a good thing. Please tell us about your accident, winds, kite size and what happened in detail.

as simple as this:try to find a place to park my kite (after not being able to water start:low winds!!!!!)in a crowded beach.someone tryed to catch aline to help me!because he though i was in trouble(i was standing hoock just looking around for the right place).he took me by surprice & (not so expirienced)in seconds i found myself being draged towards some rocks.thanks god i had the clear mind to jump over them & land into a wooden constraction(only one knee hurt and some scratches,now ok)
SO for my Co2 i really think that is necesary a 3rd depower system(any help :smile:)

That is astonishing, save us from well intended but clueless helpers! What size kite did you have up and what would you guess the wind speed to have been? Also, where did this happen?

Thanks,
Rick Iossi

By no tubes do you mean it was a foil kite like a Windtools Stamos or something similar?
