I know there is a trick in kiteboarding back loop to blind kiteloop transition / landing blind etc.....
And I'm not talking about Andy the "Grasshopper" with a bucket over his head doing it :D
Also I'm aware there are couple of people here without legs and missing hands here on KF,
But how about to be able to kiteboard when real blind, like this surfer below :?: :respect1:

Read about a blind dutch woman last year who was kiting. She got her instructions from someone on shore with mic/headphones.

I think it was in the Dutch Access magazine, but try google: blind kitesurfing ........ and you'll understand what the list looks like :wink:

Though sometimes i think there are a lot of blind kiters on the water she would be the only one who can honestly say: "i didn't see you." if she crashes into you :lol:

Not really practical for kiting as you fly your kite in to someones lines more easily.
