No words can make the pain disappear,
No actions can help ease the sorrow,
Know that there is a community behind you that are all thinking of you, and wishing there was something we could do.
My deepest condolences. Thank you for sharing your grief with us, and I hope that in some small way it has lightened your burden.

Geordieboy. I wish you and your family strength and ultimately acceptance of this untimely loss. I thank you sincerely for sharing and hope it saves other lives, as we sometimes forget how dangerous the sport can be and how quickly things can happen. We have all made misjudgments of distance, speed, timing etc and your post serves as a perfect reminder to us all as we search for and push our limits, to err a little on the safe side. You gave your son the ultimate opportunity - the gift of freedom to enjoy a sport he loved. Cherish his years and experiences and keep him in your heart until you meet again. My heart and thoughts go out to you. Know that there are many people who care, in the kite community and again I thank you wholeheartedly for unselfishly sharing your post so that we all can learn from it. Stay strong and don't ask what if. Try to take comfort in the knowledge that it was a good decision to share a sport with your son. Not every man gets to do that. I wish you safe journeys and inner peace in the times ahead.

hi all
as Alex's funeral is now only a short time away , I would like to thank you all for messages and emails we have received and the support that you all have given. I have read every single one and been touched by them all . its a very sad time for our family and close friends of Alex but knowing that people are thinking of us helps
like a lot of you have said, I hope that we can all take an extra careful look around the area we kite and sus out any dangers that may not be so obvious and if you do see something that's not 100% then maybe think again
thanks fellow kiters stay safe
cheers Eddy
