so many wrongs things in this video. Horrific and dangerous.
Oh my God! The horror, the horror! Maybe just you are being a just a little melodramatic? Please tell us how you foil boarders in Phuket do it, or shut up if you have nothing to add. What exactly is so Horrible? The video is just summary, of the common techniques we all have been doing for a long time. I do not see any difference from a hundred other videos out there.
One thing I understand in kiteboarding, is what works in one place may may not be the best in another. Maybe I have rode enough different places to get that. I do not get why some kiter from Phuket thinks that what they do is the best for some kitesurfer in South Africa, or twin tipper in the Gorge, or lake rider in Michigan. However, for some reason a lot of people here think what works on there beach is best for all. This is the best! This is the worst! I can tell you my conditions are not like yours.
My question is for those who walk the lines as in the last technique, what has go wrong? I have done it up to 30 kts, and a couple times the kite has relaunched when holding the two center lines. There was no Horror. My hands were not ripped to shreds, it did not lift me off the ground. It just came back down pretty hard on the opposite side of the window. Am I Super Man and the only person who can hold a flagged out kite? Same with anchor launching/landing. I have seen in done a thousand times with no problems, but I see people here claim cars and picnic tables have been thrown in the air. Again, I understand my conditions may not be like yours, and I am not doubting, just curious.
