Oops, went higher than I thought, scream is an unplanned reaction lol

 

Vision for kitesports

Be great to see the sport grow but people learning properly to reduce accidents with others and putting their own lives in avoidable danger - but accidents do happen

Because there generally a bunch of wimps hehe

 

Do you do any of your own kit maintenance? (eg fix broken kites, change bearings, mixer test etc).

I've changed bearings, cleaned it up, added stuff, fixed broken bits.
