I thought the same about the danger, when they first started gliding with
these water kites , but there doesn't seam to be many people dieing from
the risks you described. Actually, i don't think Anyone has died yet ?
Never thought i'd say that : Bille
I thought sort of the same thing... naturally the LAST thing you want to hear about is a severe accident, but I haven't heard of any accidents at all due to line breaks, pig tail breaks, canopy failures, etc. Thus the question.
The risks are very well debated in other threads,
and I'm glad to see that those debates may have kept most of us safely grounded!
Maybe that's the reason for not hearing about any accidents, but the gliding is certainly highlighted in pictures and videos so people are going to want to try it...
