We can be happy that not more happened.
I had several times gear breaking on me and a kite collars wen I did a kite loop.
No fun at all...and at that height it is just crazy.
Huge respect for their balls! I am sure with 30 or 35+ they will not be doing this.
And now you know why I am using an 18 in not too strong winds...I just have too much fun with this without risking injuries every time.
You need stronger lines when looping kites in 35knots + I have not broken a line in years!!! It's the most fun thing I think there is to do in life
We will be doing this till 50+ the reward far out weighs the risk!
I think you would have had a mighty show down with Tom H!
