CONCLUSION KItesurfing is not the safe sport as peddled by the industry and outside financial interests. It needs honesty and respect - transparency. It is however a most awesome sport! I hope you learn from this mammoth effort.Proactive, open source database. By the kitesurfing community. For education, equipment improvement, rider charity support. Includes instances of kiteboarders saving drowning non kiters. CONDITION: YOU MUST CREDIT IF YOU USE.

KITEBOARDING IS NOT A SAILING DISCIPLINE (most fatal accidents involve flying)It's far from a complete/perfectly accurate record it is BEST EFFORTS. hopefully we can learn from/see patterns. There will be many other incidents not listed, particularly if the accident occured in a non english speaking country / out of europe ( a lot of europe events get brought up on english speaking website).
4
DEATHLOOPS The yellow rows are incidents that may have involved deathloops of some description - Thanks to the many kiters/people that have contributed. You can do so by adding comments to the cells they will checked out and added.

FATAL: Drowned.15/06/15Here is what one latvian kiter sais about what happened:"he was kiting in Kolka and crossed place where wind goes in offshore there are very bad current and big waves plus gusty wind as i know he lost board put away kite and tried to swim out but current was too strong, so rescue was bit too late from firemen"As I understood Renars was kiting with his friends January 03, 2015 at the place called Kolka, it is the tip of the peninsular that devides Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Riga. Weather that day was my guess 5 degrees C with the 15m/s gusty wind, water temperature must have been 4-5 degrees C. He was riding LF surfboard and LF kite (possibly the Hi-Fi if I remember it correctly) and he was wearing the wetsuit. Friends of Renars got out of the water first when he must have been lost or dropped the tangled kite for some reason unknown in a distance about 400 meters from the beach. By then they could not see him any more at the stormy sea. For some reasons resque service was on scene two hours later and they could not use helicopter. Volunteers searched the beach all night and the following days. Renars body along with his gear was found in the morning of January 06 by the local man walking the dog near the Gipka not so far from the Kolka.Latviahttps://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=zL7nd9cMerTc.kKTybYpWFFZYhttp://www.kasjauns.lv/lv/zinas/175301/jura-pie-kolkas-pazudis-kaitbordists-renars-mileikaWatererik k via email to databasehttp://www.kasjauns.lv/lv/zinas/175511/noslikusais-kaitbordists-renars-mileika-parvertejis-savas-spejas
