Google the story of the guy in Florida a few years ago. That was the most brutal kite surfing incident I have read. Homeboy took a spill only 400 yards off shore, and was eating by a pack of sharks. They suspect that it was juvenile whites.

"He is the first person to die of a shark attack in Florida waters in five years and only the 14th since 1896. Beaches remained open Thursday."
How many people died in a car accident just yesterday alone? Like 113 or so? It's about 40k per year last I checked...

Have fun. If I had the time, I would get into it for sure. Right now its hard enough to get out a couple days a week in the surf.
And with regards to the Florida thing, that was a freak accident. He was REAL close to shore, so that same situation would have happened to a diver, snorkeler, surfer or whoever happened to be in the water at the time...
But talk about sh**y timing. damn. Dude was like a pro too.
