YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS!!!!
I Recently had a talk about safety in and around kiting as I felt there were a number of points that needed to be discussed. A lot of people are guilty of these and it could have a disastrous consequences in the future. My belief is that it is best said in a bad way rather than never said at all.
The reason I am saying this that the sound quality here is bad, as we had to try and get rid of the surf noise, but there are some brilliant points that if you are not aware of then the rest is on your head. So watch this!!
