XRAY out of the Netherlands has been a big help in researching past incidents in Holland. He just came up with a nice acronym that promotes some key ideas to help grab the stoke of kiteboarding while trying to dodge the darker side of things.

WOOSH CHECK!

W for Weather, gusty wind, coldfronts etc.
O for Obstacles, no obstacles in lee & use a SAFE buffer zone, etc.
O for Others, look and hear at what others are saying and doing
S for Safety, check, maintain & know your gear and safety systems,
H for Help, always take care that there are other peope to help you and help others when needed.

I think he has come up with a great idea. So, think it over, memorize it and do your own WOOSH CHECK!, whenever you ride.
