Nothing like over egging the pudding eh dick head. The idea of a safety leash is to REDUCE the risk. We know its a risky sport and thats why we do it - the rush but if you can make it safer for other water users and also beach users why not? When you line breaks and your kite rips some poor cunts head off half a mile a way im sure youll deal with it in your own inimitable style but dont come and kite on our beach with that attitude or itll be you with no head shit for brains.

distance is your friend
this is imnportant when you ride to avoid accidents or problems.
And if a riders chooses to ride without leash they should make sure that there is no-one around, no-one at the beach and they are downwind of others. If they do this, it is fine and no-one cares. But unfortunately many don't do it this way and that makes it a problem for others. And if it is a problem for others they will/should act.
Isn't Silke's death not enough to understand what can happen? Is it really neccessary that a kid at the beach has to die to demand using leashes to avoid this scenario?
It will happen with attitudes like that and I only hope, it won't be at any spot that I kite, because kiting will be BANNED !!!
Shouldn't we all avoid this?
YES - WE SHOULD !!!!!! or it will be too late....
