I seen the ambulance arrive. Lots of riders and schools out this morning in very hectic, gusty conditions and super low tide. Exposed rocks everywhere. Hope this person pulls up OK.

Not been a great week for kiteboarding in WA.

I wonder if she was under instruction at the time she hurt herself?

Soul kiting at a guess

Those pictures certainly don't make the river look all that healthy?

Hi Rads,

Not all kite schools in Perth fit that profile. We have a maximum student to instructor ratio of 1:1 which means a maximum of only two students on the beach at one time, and don't teach in anything other than sea breezes. Just sayin ....
