OK then after reading again it is said that he arrived at that spot apparently alone..
.... someone helped him to launch...and was riding nearby
He got further away from his spot and trouble started
One person explains that it is a very dangerous location to kite from in such wind direction...
....and should have been avoided
It is very difficult to go and rescue someone quickly in case of emergency
Major kite spot yes...but on that type strong wind and direction....very very risky..if things go wrong
Once again i am just translating what other people are saying
You all be safe now
