Yes I did and almost died because my kite disappear on the other side of one of these big waves and then got eaten. I was at least 900 yards out to see. List my board but hang on to my kite for dear life. I almost got drawn. I got tumbled by at least 6 big waves, but then got eaten by at least 20 waves. Not only that the the water was very very cold. That was the closest I have come to near death experience. It took me 45 minutes to get back to the beach. Nothing happened to the kite. I was amazed. One of the lines broke only. :cry:

Glad to hear you're ok. Just goes to show how things can happen fast.

Maybe you should fly better kites? :rollgrin:

Yes that is True. And this is only the first breakers that you see far away. You had to past 1 more after that and then you had these big giant waves. Unreal surfing, until ....... well you know the rest.
