Is that like the hardest trick you can think of? A jump? A big one? What a strange request? Why would i be doing this again?

Is it to do with how experienced kiters die? Or is it something else? Are you my new coach? I need one

Are you child prodigy that never really made it, then turned to acid n other stuff as you saw that as cool and good excuse for not being good enough to be worthy of instant recognition by yr fans?

Are you high now and the aviation stories just deluded and childhood dreams?

Have you experienced a wet dream yet?

Actually i tried acid while gliding. Its so so so so so not a good idea. And was just enough to really feel it. Drinking and flying much worse tho.

Way it goes is your relying entirely on repitition and muscle memory to save your ass. As saying goes you can drive back from pub everynight for a year no dramas. butyou could do it blind folded but second something changes on that route like a dog or a bird maybe detour your toast.

Its no different for kiteing. But for me the ride home from the pub is pretty much any kite condition you can think of. Cause after all thats where i do my drinking.

Anyways so just wondered what the inevitable goat in the road will be for me.

Being surrounded by water can only hit water still seems fairly safe.

Ive had plenty of back edges and seeing little black squares flying around tho so maybe a concussion/drowning combo it will be for me.


My only broken bones ( 4ribs) was hitting water.

Yeah i fractured ribs doing hooked in mega/kiteloops not being able to breathe when in water is pretty frightening.

I didnt push the bar out to let it fly faster thru wind window to catch me. Lesson learnt

www.bbc.com/news/amp/uk-england-sussex-49058930 what yas reckon? Hot launched near rocks ? Near a sign saying dont so that? Experienced or in experienced?

I know ive been caught out self launching. Most people have. Thats why most are now experienced and know the limits...

All speculation of course.

Hard to tell as usual not enough info given, no one learns anything.

Either way the picture gives image of pretty poor launch opportunities and not really great spot to. really choppy seems to be not real wave to ride and a lot of obstacles visable and likely just under the water

Good news is he was english and no longer has to deal with theyre terrible excuse for beaches. Looks like a bloody sea wall cant imagine a more painful thing to be launching on/ infront of.

I just thought it was worth mentioning due to the quite graphic sign already in place.

I reckon we could make this a drinking game of some sort.


Sign says dont dont l near rocks and to be 50m from objects and be at waters edge and have insurance. Allll the good things you could possibly have on a sign.

Im Im call it a monkey see monkey do situation. Someone with intermediate abilitys watches someone proficient do it and bam. Probably a 1 kite only quiver.
