A local rider has a leash setup that allows him to do one handle pass. It also allows 4 spins before any issues appear.On 2002-11-04 23:50, Toby wrote:
recently I had a discussion about this topic with a female pro rider.
I was informed that the comps are very safe due to comp areas with large distance to hard objects and rescue boats.
Still, the pros don't act as idols.
And the biggest problems they don't think of: they have to practice tricks like handle passes, but for sure the safety precautions of a comp is not given wherever they practice!!!!
The solution would be: at least no more handlepasses then you still can ride with safety!
Hey Jo, I think you got me wrong, didn't you? I require safety and if someone can do handlepasses with a leash, that is fine, but not without. Because I saw it many times now that good riders are doing a h-p and had to let go at packed beaches. Luckily no one was injured, so far, but unfortunately it will and then our sport isfacing serious trouble. Don't want that so if someone is doing this without any precautions like on any empty beach or upwind of other riders, they face trouble at the beach from other riders.On 2002-11-05 08:35, Mr Jo Macdonald wrote:
