From another forum....


French news / kitesurfing fora report 2 fatalities on the same day. May they rest in peace. Condolances to their loved onces.

The first case was an experienced kitesurfer that was launching his kite in gusty conditions relatively near a stone wall. He lost control due to a gust and was smashed into the wall.

The second case was a kitesurfer who accidentally got his kite in the mast of a catamaran. I understand that the skipper turned his boat tangling the kiters lines under his boat trapping the kiter below the surface.
