      Carrying on a tradition started by other prominent riders such as Neil
      Hutchinson, Dimitri Maramenides, Kent Marinkovic, Paul Menta and others,
      Shannon Best is the latest well known kiteboarder to share details of a
      kiteboarding incident/accident.

      This isn't a" Best" thing or anything other than another well known rider
      deciding to try to help out other kiteboarders by passing along some hard
      won, often painful experience. Shannon could have kept this information to
      himself as so many other riders have done in the past but instead he elected
      to pass along the details as have the other riders listed, some more than
      once.

      So, for well known kiteboarders, when you learn something important that
      will help to keep you whole and healthy, why not pass along your experiences
      along to the rest of us? Feel free to email information to me privately at
      <flkitesurfer@...> or by PM to ricki.

      Shannon's story about a recent, nasty lofting inland follows at:

      N.B. - "LOFTING" = the state of involuntarily being picked up and hurled
      downwind by your kite when it is hit by a windgust.

      Thanks Shannon for passing along your experiences in the School Of Hard
      Knocks.
