Looks like they're riding in some sort of squall or adverse weather condition and looks like rider is a young learner and the Dad is frantically trying to get to him/her... Plus no helmet on the rider... Shallow water too... Rider's not letting go of bar... I keep editing my post. I keep finding things wrong... Looks like a dangerous situation!

No helmets during a lesson.
The closest kite in the background does not appear to have a kiter attached to it, but I would guess he/she is down in the water and not up and riding.

"Seoyoung Son That woman is me. I'm alright.
It was very windy that day, and to make it worse I pulled the bar too tightly.
I somehow expected it could be dangerous. Still, what an unforgettable experience!"

she's korean, not sure where she's taking the lessons

nice that the instructor didn't kill her and that she won't quit kiting.

I am sure I will get clobbered for asking this, but what the heck.

For initial stationary kite flying lessons would it be safer for the instructor to be hooked to the leash? Assuming a bar that flags to a single line. This way the kite could only drag the student so far before it would flag. I realize the centerline below the bar might be a hazard, but much less than a free flying student. Just a thought. Critique away.
