Question Self-rescue

I recently read Renee Hanks's article in SBC Kiteboard and found it very good:

However I was curious about the statement that bow (flat) kites were not covered in the article. I first learned on a C and was taught self-rescue on them. Later when I purchased a flat kite, I never considered what the differences might be for self-rescue. Any insight on this issue would be much appreciated.

Also I have been wondering about assisted rescue. If someone else is in trouble on the water and you are riding, what should you do depending on the circumstances? Go to the rider or the kite? Something else? I'm sure that the actions would greatly depend on the various situations that would arise.

Thanks in advance for any comments people may have.
