Default Crossed Lines Caught On Video?

Not sure about the crossed lines and yet given the hesitating kite behavior and nuking flight 180 degrees across the sky dragging the kiter into the water, makes me think that might have been it. North was the first to come out with kook-proof lines too, go figure. The helper shouldn't have released the kite without seeing the kite wants to "bite" into the air and looking down the lines to make sure they aren't crossed. He sure as hell shouldn't have thrown it up particularly in high wind. I wonder if the helper was a windsurfer and not familiar with any of this. The kiter screwed up by not making sure his helper was experienced if this was the case.

What do you think?
