Sad hear
an experienced kitesurfer, apparently one of his lines broke, and the guy got tangled up in his lines, and pulled under the water by the kite and drowned. Winds were over 30 knots. Happened yesterday at a great kitesurfing spot in Quebec.
A reminder to inspect your gear before every session.

If you understand French this is the link.

pulled up a wind chart for this saturday quebec actually lake st jean I think that's where it happened, using the st gedeon wind meter

My condolences to the family. Of course we don't know the details or what his experience level was. Even though initial report is he kited for "several years" it's not the years but hours in the water he could be anywhere from beginner to expert, and it's clear from the wind chart this was not a day for beginners.

Very sad to hear this similar accident recently, Condolences.
Maybe he didn't read what happened in Germany recently

Question, do you guys think if he had a knife to cut the lines, he would be still here :?:

Really sad news. Condolences to the kiter's family and friends. This is, I think, the second fatal accident in Quebec this year that has been reported here. Maybe someone with passable French can give us a translation of the circumstances as I'm sure we'd all like to know more about what happened.
