I remember seeing that video a few years back.
It's never too late to hit QR or release leash. In this case it was too late..

Why dig up the past? Yes, plenty of gore back there. Like almost any extreme sport.

What are you really trying to achieve if you're not offering new answers?

Like they said. That clip has been posted and discussed before. Couple years back when it happened.

And?

There is nothing wrong with posting it again. I was just trying to bring some awareness to the table. It seems like everyone lately has been kiting carelessly in my area, and this is my way of telling everyone to be careful.

You would have likely got more out of it had you said as much.

Simply reposting something we have seen before without any further info or context will get you what you got.
