I've recently met an old windsurf buddy.
He's been kitesurfing now for almost 10 years and he said something remarkable:
"The last couple of years, kite surfing has become a lot safer because of the depowering facility of modern kites, but even to this day, each time when I go out, I feel nervous, thinking about the dangers that are involved with this sport. There is no way I would dare to use still a kite older than 5 years. I can't understand that I ever took the risk using these older type of kite."
It makes you wonder, not ?
