I agree about safety, and not to knock videos (but I will)....most,
if not all (I haven't seen them all), do not really offer
instruction. There's talk about what to do, but a lot is left out
since you can't see the rider and the kite at the same time. They
just seem like a marketing ploy to increase awareness for local
riders and shops....
I don't know...but they could certainly do a better job to promote
safety, like showing riders riding with helmets and PFDs and
LEASHES!, and more instruction. I'm sure I'll get thrashed for saying
that, but in Chicago, as the sport grows, we have a perfect safety
record so far, and we're trying real hard to keep it that way!
