I am really glad you made it and shared your story with us.
I am sure this will help to save some lives!

Wow, what a story.

And I am even more happy, that I prefer to fly a big kite in lighter winds...I limit my risk a lot by doing this. My smallest kite is a 14 and I barely use it.

For people who just like to have fun without worrying too much about safety, think about it...

mr moon, welcome back to life and enjoy it!!!


Toby, don't think this can't happen on a big kite! it can!


i agree with u cuz i can see toby's airstyle which he did make big air with big kite on light wind so if wrong something on his kite to be deathloop , would pull him , faster as no difference ! and Toby , u better prepare to be ready and can u avoid panic attack ?

18m x2 - worlds slowest kite corner of bar got jammed in harness hook - took me on a journey on thankfully a very large beach, managed to crash looping kite pulling line to slow it down into slamming to ground to get a second of slack and release. I been riding some different 2013/2014 kites recently - they turn sooooooo fast and with such ligt bar pressure, i just dont know what you would do......
