people being scared to realise there kites to the leash before the shit hits the fan. I have a couple of mates who never pull their QR they'd rather just get dragged down the beach and wait for someone to grab them or their kite.
this is the famous nail on the head!
and this thinking and behavior will and does kill people.
The most of us are not ready to pull their QR, or are not trained to do it in a bad situation.
"my kite will get wet - I don't want to swim back - my lines get tangled - etc" famous thoughts before some people die or injure themselves.
This has to stop! We need to actively be ready anytime to pull the QR. Otherwise the best QR won't help us.
If you have a new bar or system, train several times and do it several times to activate your QR. This way you will know that your QR works and you will train where the QR is. This way you will also see, if it works or not.
When I go to Brazil next week, I will also train it during kiteloops, this way I can see if it opens in excelleration and show myself, that it works and I'm ready to pull anytime.
We have to train this, as we had to use the break withing parts of a second to stop the car.
