on a Waroo 13m.

I forgat the wind was steady 8 to 10 mph
and he used to do it before in Columbia.
I'm not promoting this kind of activities either.

Didn't everybody die on Miami Vice eventually? :roll:

100 feet/30 m can be lethal when a line breaks or something else goes wrong

This guy should be nominated for a Darwin award. He is well in his way to getting it. The worst part would be that if he is an instructor, his students may be encouraged to follow in his footsteps. Riders may be facing a potential beach closure in Miami. When votes are needed to prevent a ban, should people vote against the ban if this sort of thing is permitted at that beach? Nothing against you guys in Miami, just a thought into what could be a potential ban over there.

nice one - just remember folks - never tie yourself/ your kite bar to the line towing you - only hold onto a handle so you can let go easily - if you don't something will snap/give way and and you may fall and die if real high.

I don't have a problem with those who risk their own necks without risking others for the buzz, that is why I do the sports I do.
