Okay maybe it’s just me but that this NY Times headline seems rather obvious: After Kite Boarder’s Accident, Some Say Winds Were Too Much. Watch this and you be the judge:
Here’s an interesting side story in the NY Times article which seems to reinforce the notion that kiteboarders are persistent.
A permutation of the sport was featured in the first X Games in 1995 in Providence, R.I. Some of the competitors crashed into rocks, and one was blown off course to Newport, R.I. When he finally made land, he hailed a cab, loaded his kite in the trunk and rode back to the venue. The sport was dropped from the games for the following year.
Hope the kiteboarder, Kevin Kearney recovers swiftly.
