I guess it comes from growing up and going through all this stuff eh? I wasn't really phased by it at all. *shrug*

    I saw a guy walking down the street this afternoon with his board and all his gear. I'm sure the waves were great today as well...lol.

    true, it does seem to take the sport out of it, but even though many of us here have strong grips, you gotta admit that it would be tough to hang on to something like that for more than a minute even in coastal gusts, let alone a friggin tropical storm. I find it hard to believe that guy was hanging on by himself through all that.

    Just to respond to all of you at once....

    In kiteboarding your hands are NOT strapped to the kite. You're actually wearing a harness that is directly attached to the kite itself. The handle for the kite is attached to a cable, but you can let go of the handle at any time.
