Confused by kiter jargon? No worries, check out the glossary at:
http://kitesurfingschool.org/glossary.htm#GlossS

Oh, here's a term that doesn't appear in the glossary:
suicide leash = a type of kite depowering leash
or cord intended to halt the pull of the kite if the control bar
is dropped (almost, hence the "suicide" modifier). An
example appears as that black ropey thing in the photo below.

From: kiteboardingmag.com

Still have questions? Just ask away.
