The other day I had a front line fail.
With out going into too much detail.....
Wind was slightly off shore...
Pretty strong current...
I really needed a tow to the beach.
I had the kite safely on the 5th line folded in half (flysurfer Foil)
I had the broken line safely wrapped around the bar.
I waved down two kiters.... both expert judging by their riding.
Both refused to help.
One even yelled if you can't relaunch it's your problem.
Anyway after a difficult ordeal in the surf and current I got back to the beach.
I had to rest a bit but my board was still out there.
At that point another kitesurfer had just arrived... he threw on his wetsuit and asked me to
spot for my surfboard while he swam out through the surf and current to get it.
So two very different types of kitesurfers.
The type you ask for help and they refuse and the ones you don't even ask for help and they go way oput of their way to help.
Big thanks to Rich of www.malibukitesurfing.com
for retrieving my board!
To the other two kiters...... If your in distress don't worry I will help you out regardless..... because I'm just that kind of kiter.
