    well you got to think. when old people on the beach look at us like we are crazy when we paddle out into some crazy big surf. well i guess we are kinda like the old people on the beach. its just a different kinda stoke. but i guess he wasn't very prepared for flight....

    The guy is in critical condition....

    I saw the video and think it was not a smart move for him to be kite surfing in winds that high...I am sure there will be a county ordinance on the books in no time making it illegal in the future because of this...

    We can all get out of our element without realizing it and that is abviously what happened to this guy...

    I hope he doesn't die because of it.

  8. yea me 2, ive never kite surfed but coudn't he of just let go of the kite when he saw he was about to get whisped away?

    I think those things are pretty well attached. I am sure there is some sort of "emergency" release type deal but that may again show a lack of experience?

    I just love the people that stare at you from their rented condo balcony while you change into this tight rubber suit in the parking lot. Then they ask you, "isn't the water cold?" "Hell yes its cold, that is why I'm wearing this 200 dollar rubber suit!"
