How to self-rescue

It’s just a matter of time: one day you will get stuck out there on the water at a distance from shore with no chance of a kite re-launch.  SO HOW DO YOU GET BACK TO SHORE?

Well, the self-rescue technique, of course.

All too often, schools are skipping this part of the lesson. Even when we are taught we don’t get enough practice so by the time the self-rescue is needed most we may have forgotten already.

So below is a link to a video as a refresher on how to do the self-rescue.  After having seen the video: keep in mind that one of the techniques to get back to shore (using the kite as a sail) is only mentioned and not shown. We will try to capture this on video and share this with you. Watch this space!
