This is a question I'm glad nobody saw me

Have you ever done something, realised how stupid or embarrassing it was and then looked about to see if anyone watching? Did you get away with it?

Another power kiting tale
I was flying one of my kites on the field at my old school some years ago, just as people were leaving for the day. I'd been doing a few jumps using a 10ft bank for extra height. As the group of people at the bottom had grown to include about fifty children of various ages, I decided to really go for it. I ran like a madman toward the edge, swung the kite over my head and leapt into the void.

I was flying! I was flying! I was easily 15ft up! I was... not paying attention to where the kite was!

*Cartoon moment where I hovered, immobile, some 10ft off the ground*


Don't think I ever really lived that one down.

the first time i got kite serious air
over on the rugby fields near cannon hill park in Birmingham,
stack of two flexifoil super tens "remember them" with those padded wrist straps, in an absolute howling gale.
fuck me the biggest fastest scariest air i ever got i was yanked bodily up about six feet, fuck i thought this is ace, then a freak gust caught me and i sailed up another ten at least, shit i thought am going to die
the sheer violence of those stackers in a high wind is something to be believed.
the float is of course non existent i came down fast and hard in the mud and got dragged through the mud and dogshit for a bit.
i wrestled the kites back into the bags and fucked off sharpish, nobody saw it, it must have been quite spectacular.
