What an idiot. People like this get kiting banned.

Look at what this idiot does.

He ties off his leash to a lifeguard tower to do a tethered landing.
He claims a drunk lady came up to him and wanted to try his kite.

The idiot then proceeds to bring the kite down onto it's wing tip
with the lady two feet from his lines and bar.

The idiot then walks off to go and catch his kite and the woman
touches the bar, at first like she was just holding it still.
Then something goes wrong and the kite goes into a loop,
body slamming the lady and ripping free of the leash.

The idiot even took his time walking to the kite.... too cool for school.

I don't think I have seen a kiter do something as stupid as they in a long time.

Just so stupid. These are the type of idiots that get kiting banned.

Someone teach this idiot to do a safe self landing please.

Why is he an idiot?

Looks like a good self landing to me until that drunk woman pulls on the bar...

in his defense the bitch shouldn't have been touching it...ive had so many people touch my shit whether its my board washing up on shore or the kite bar while I'm hooked in, then when i yell at them i look like a dick, but in reality in saving my skin or their shin skin from the board edge and waves

the kite looks like a fuel, and when the wind is up its easier to tether land that thing if you don't have a wind shadow to land it, the old front line pull in land is tricky, I've had to basically release my kite once and walk up the line cause there was no one or nothing to land it

its the idiots that want to do tricks near shore and smash their kites into swimmers that piss me off, i have no problem popping their leading edge and getting in a fight

I don't know why youre blasting the guy, he was landing his kite correctly and some stupid beatch didn't have the mental capacity to realise that what she was trying to do might be dangerous and slam her into the beach, well lesson learnt!!

Yeah, how is that his fault? That's completely her fault, and frankly, she should pay for any damage to his kite.

If you tell someone "No, this is dangerous" and they do it anyways, it's on them, take some responsibility for your actions. Just because he's kiting, doesn't mean he's responsible for drunken idiots who don't listen.

A quick search reveals the gentleman flying the kite is named Fred and is a kite instructor at AOK in Savanna, Georgia. Probably also plays golf and fishes on no wind days.
Being the spiritually advanced person that you are, you most likely also know that calling people names often results in a negative/positive, stove black situation.
Tolerance and non judgment. Not one of my finely honed traits either.
