Yesterday, I ripped my 12m kite on a chimney because I was kiting to close to shore in underpowered conditions. I didn't cause any damage to the home owners property and they seemed genuinely not to mind the incident. I was apologetic and they said it wasn't a problem. This was at Belle River.

I just learned today that two other kiters recently ripped their kites at Metro Beach. One in the trees and one in the rocks. Both kiteboarders are experienced and one of the kiters is an excellent kiteboarder and kiteboarding since 1999.

As we get more experience kiteboarding, I think it's natural to be less safety conscience, but we should all keep a good distance offshore when riding. http://www.fksa.org/viewtopic.php?t=2 says at least 300 feet (100 meters).
