News reporters rarely make an effort to get all the details right. It sounds to me like they meant to say "kite" and not "kiteboard". I can't even begin to understand why they used the word "flick". Maybe that's an Australian thing because in American English you would never use it in that way. It would be nice to have a better explanation of what happened because the way it is written it's really hard to figure out.
I think Thor got it right. The average person doesn't even know what kiteboarding is, let enough understand it well enough to explain an accident. The reporters also writing the story for the average person, so explaining it well would probably be over most people's heads.
Does anyone here have a good handle on what actually happened?
Kudos to the guys buddy.
