Eric, (or any other kiteboarders who see this), please be careful! Answered

Did you see the news story about the guy who was kitesurfing during Fay and got slammed around? Linky.

I know you all are smarter than that...but please be careful anyhow...I'd hate to see a forum topic about one of you all getting hurt.

I'd hate to see a forum topic about one of you all getting hurt.

While I haven't seen any forum topics, there was an Instructable...

1) Do triage; take care of immediate/life threatening disasters.
2) Take pictures of injury; add time course as necessary.
3) Post!

Hmm, as of the 19th he was in critical condition, the original link I posted seems to be no longer there.

agh, Fay was lame. I got out of school for 2 days fro this rain storm. My friednd and I made a little board from scraps and made an airfoil kinda thing and let the wind tow us, yet their was almost no wind. There was some today though, and it pulled us. I might make like a slide show and post it.
