Kite Jumping

Kite jumping is a sport that is extremely dangerous and is one of the forms of power kiting that should not be attempted without taking the necessary safety precautions.

I guess the best safety precaution is "Don't Do It!". But if you must ktiejump, wear a helmet, knee and elbow pads, do it over soft sand or grass (preferably water), because you can have a hard landing. Just be sensible!
