There were actually two accidents in New Zealand in 2002 that I wrote about blending the circumstances in my recollection nine years later. One involved a squall while the other involved uplift lofting. You have some demanding riding conditions.
Both are at: http://www.fksa.org/showthread.php?t=148
19. Incident # 1 02 1 "Unstable Weather Causes Serious Lofting" Location: Auckland, New Zealand
42. Incident # 6 02 2 "Serious Uplift Lofting" Location: Wellington, New Zealand
These are old accounts, written some years before reliable QR designed specific for kiting came into existence.
