Hello kieran and kite-a-holic,
Your accident accounts sound like they carry some important lessons for the rest of us. For the longest time I was saying wear a helmet. For the last year or so I have been saying wear a good helmet. Your experiences point out the importance of this. I would like to add your accounts to the KIC. No names will be mentioned of course.
Please provide information regarding kite size, wind speed and relative direction, location, relative rider experience, safety gear as it relates to the accident and what exactly happened along with injuries and rehab. Please email the info to me at:
Thanks for your help in this. We need all the good input that we can get on these issues.
