yeah, tow kiting is great. super high flying and zero redundancy in any of your gear.



If you want to fly they've got a sport for that, it's called paragliding

Yo I think Neil had the rope hooked to his harness and thats why it broke. In that vid I put up they were just holding onto the rope much safer. Plus Neil took it till there was not angle left on the rope!

the problem is that you've got 4 lines, all of which are needed for the kite to fly so if any one breaks you're gonna fall uncontrolled from pretty high up. You're less likely to have trouble holding on to the rope but there are still a lot of failure modes.

I liked the kiting in the video and it looks cool paragliding with a kite but it's just very dangerous and if you do it at any US spots I'd imagine you'd be risking your kite access at that spot.
