TODAY I HAVE BEEN KITING. VERY UPSETTING, STILL TOO MANY PEOPLE KITING WITHOUT SAFETY LEASH.
IF YOU SEE ANY OF THEM, PLEASE DONT MISS SAYING THEY ARE NOT ALLOWD TO PLAY WITH OTHER'S LIFE.
THE ANTIPANIC HANDLE IS NOT SUFFICIENT. STILL QUICK RELEASE ARE NOT SAFE. THEY CAN OPN BY ACCIDENT OR NOT OPEN AT ALL!
USE SAFETY LEASH!!

'yes dear' ?

i agree with niks.
there are workin' systems available.

if a leashless runaway kite hits me or my lines, the guy responsible should better run faster than me.

I agree........ kiteboarders without leashes are utter hazards..... I keep my distance from them at all times and especially don't go downwind from them....... and you can get an idea which kiters don't use leashes....

Although there are probably better systems out on the market..... I find the X2 system to be really good... Miles miles better than the old school way where you had a leash attached to the end of an outside leaderline....
