How about -- hands off other people's stuff? Yes it's their fault.plummet wrote: ↑Sat Apr 08, 2017 7:48 pmThis is not the fault of the random beach goer. This is your fault for not recognizing a potentially dangerous situation and diffusing it before it could happen.
You must presume that any and all beach goers have no clue about kites until proven otherwise. In which case you need to prepare for the worse each time you have an interaction with random people. Choose to educate the uninformed and position yourself so you do not get into that situation again.
I remember a time I was about to solo drag launch in 35 knots. A entire family of mum dad and the kids walked up and stood smack down wind of my kite with big goofy smiles on their faces wanting to watch me launch. If the high wind solo launch had gone pear shaped they would have all been taken out. I had to politely suggest to them to move upwind to a safe spot to watch.
