I would've thought they have some sort of immediate-release device, that can detach the ropes and the kite. Too bad... it's such a fun sport, but those guys there underestimated the strength of the winds!

So, this guy was kite surfing in a tropical storm? And, are we *surprised* that he got hurt? WTF? Not exactly the brightest light bulb.

Yes, though there was no sound for me.
