If you released your safety...They'd wish they weren't holding on to a back line... unless it was our safety line...

I also had this happen. First time in Boracay about 3 years ago by a complete loser, and I was lucky to escape unhurt. And at my local beach where a kid about 10 or 11 at a guess jumped up and tried to swing from one brake line with the kite low....he let go after a few seconds when he realised the lines hurt !!

Not very nice is it!!!

and here's what you do to stop them.

put your foot behind their knee and push forwards until their leg buckles and then keep on going...


it's amazing how falling flat on your face will make you drop whatever you are holding onto.


I wouldn't be surprised if falling would cause them to do a death grip on the line to keep themselves from falling down. Sadly, in the US, you would probably get charged with assault and get sued.

LOL that's what you get for posing on the beach with your kite at the zenith. Na seriously mate you must have been pissed.........
Missing the kiting in Cyprus, Bahrain is ok water warm, but the bloody wind is frezzing. Also I have never kited on such flat water, it was really strange, but man what speed when the wind is blowing 22 kts gusting 27, it was like a mirror. Look forward to seeing you in March. Take it easy dude and happy kiting.
