Having heard through form of the horrendous fatality (commiserations to all the family) of poor guy in France I was considering getting some kind of hook knife.
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m fairly new to the sport and have had one situation where kite has looped many times getting the lines tangled and therefore out of control. Trying everything I knew turned out to be useless as the kite eventually took off with me under / across the water. Very disorientated I managed to pull the QR and thankfully the kite was gone, managed to retrieve it later.
Fortunate for me the lines were not wrapped around me but after hearing about the poor guy in France I started to wonder if they were what wound I have done. I have a harness with a small hook knife in the back pocket. But not sure in the rush / panic of the moment if I would have been able to get it or even be quick thinking enough to consider getting it.
I used to dive a lot a thought of getting another small hook knife to put on the front of my harness. I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t want to come over as insensitive so shortly after the accident but just wondered if anyone else had any suggestions on type / make of knife and best place to mount it so it accessible in the heat of the moment..
