How NOT to play with kites..

This video was just shared about on facebook by the SUCK guys. It shows what ‘seemed’ like a good idea at the time but ended – almost predictably – in near disaster. From what I can read into this they attached a long shoe lace from the boat to the harness and proceeded to fly things about to get some great lift. It is actually a wonderful example of apparent wind effects with flying the kite about.

Anyway, the shoe lace snaps at about 20ft up, the shock has stopped the guy completing his loop (which would have made things a bit softer) and he hits the deck like a sack of spuds. Good job this wasn’t over land!

Anyway. watch, enjoy, LEARN..
