I think you should try to contact Rick Iossi .
He is posting quite frequently on kiteforum.com
Cry for help there as well I am sure somebody will help even the moderator .
In my opinion more respons then here.
Actually he is trying to find the same data as you are looking for.
Anyhow the only bad accident I have encountered was girl who had an open
fracture on the knee.
This happened when she was getting lessons .
In my opinion the girl was physically not fit enough to start kitesurfing.
It is a common seen attitude .
People that does not practice any sport at all and then try an amazing sport
that is not up to his/her basic level.
You don't need to be schwarzie in kitesurfing.
Kind regards ,
