I just read an unbelievable story in the German forum www.oase.com

During the German National Championship and Kitesurf Trophy 2008 Joel, a junior freestyle rider, puts up a 9m kite and tests its power on the beach before he goes out for his first round.

Suddenly an old man appears, grabs his bar and lines, and pulls it...now the kite starts to loop, and Joel flys towards another rider (Holger) and breaks his upper arm in the shoulder area. He had to be taken immediately to the hospital and had a surgery in the evening.

The old man ran away and disappeared in the crowd...they never got him.

am samstag starten wir einen 9er kite in spo für seinen ersten run bei den junioren.

joel steht mit dem kite an land und probiert ob genug druck im schirm ist.

kommt ein alter man an und greift ihm in die bar und leinen, zieht dran, kite loopt, joel fliegt übern strand auf mich drauf und bricht sich den oberarm am schultergelenk so schwer das er sofort ins krankenhaus mußte und am gleichen abend ins op.
wurde dann mit drei nägel unter vollnarkose gerichtet.
