I ended up with 7 stitches, but am mostly fine.

One guy was particularly useful with a first aide kit. I believe his name was Dave and I believe he kites, cause he was parked down the other end.

I was thinking of posting this on the ikitesurf forum but I guess it was closed down a few years ago.

This guy was a kiter who did a faceplant on his foil.

Head went into the boom clamp. I was wearing sea-specs which broke and did most of the damage near the eye.[img][/img]
