Default No bail out

There was no bail out area if the wind ebbed. He was between two docks and essentially committed to either jumping or running into the dock. Bad position to be in. Thankfully he survived.

When jumping or performing tricks, one should always leave extra room for error.

Too many times I have seen kiters performing tricks/jumping upwind close to beaches with bystanders. It is just a matter of time before another kitemare along with the bad publicity with potential for a ban.
