Anybody done that?

Postby Caesar » Tue Jan 21, 2014 1:57 am

Look at these lucky guys... :wink:

2 set of foot straps (I see they put another set of sleeves or something onto the handle)?
How to attach both harnesses together?

Cheers

So much wrong with this...

If you don't know French (I don't) get someone to translate it to understand what they are saying, maybe they discuss the risks and what they do to mitigate the risks?

Apparently they endorse or actually did take the invalid wheelchair bound girl out for a ride?! she's at minute 2:36 - yikes. Sure, the ride of her life, as long as nothing goes wrong...

Yeah, in double over heads with a novice strapped between me and the bar! How do you undo a line tangle/wrap, death loop, cut lines if necessary, body drag, water start in deep water, manage flying the kite while you are under the foam, anything like that??

If you must, keep to shallow water with no hazards - even then, risky since the person is obviously a total novice, probably doesn't even know how to steer a kite up to 12 if they had to. In a situation, a novice would hold on for dear life and go full power on you just when you don't want it.

Figure out a quick-release to undo yourself from your guest? He looks pretty tightly strapped in with the person, I thought at first it was just his hook on her harness rear handle, but doesn't look that way. Then again, disconnecting yourself from your novice guest might be a death wish, especially since it has to be big kite to begin with.

That dude is probably banging every split tail that gets on that mutant 4 strap set-up.....because of the implication....

Blah blah blah.... same old safety bullshit criticising someone for trying something fun and different and as usual without knowing jack all about it. Good for them I say!

I want to do this with my gf (not with "paying" guests). My gf is a kiter too.
And she would get mad at me having another girl rubbing her bum against my d***/b*** (even though that would be nice...hehe).

All you need is one fast toeside wipeout and one rider loses a bunch of teeth while the other gets new dentures in the back of the head.

Or in the case of the young child a knee , or spreader bar/hook to the back of head.

Really? I don't know jack all about it? OK, you make an assumption about me, I'll make one about you: It must be you in the video since you speak authoritatively about me not knowing jack.

Do tell, oh kite surfing god, how are you attached to the invalid girl when you took her out?

Be kind to us all, and do the extra stupid risky stuff alone and maybe you'll get your own Darwin award.
