That first crash is pretty interesting. I hate rope wear as much as any guy, but this shows what can happen if you do not catch it in time. Wonder if there was any outward sign of distress visible?

Just what exactly can we learn, you think? If you jump big, or jump gaps, you can crash? Sensationalist stuff...nothing more.

Just rewatched. Have learnt the following interesting insights:
Lines can break, maintenance might help.
Watch when and where you jump and kite.
Jumping big is risky.

Well....bugger me. Maybe I shouldn't go out on the water this afternoon.
