You can't keep a good man, kiter down. Just heard from Uli, looks like Toto has been at it again. Yesterday, September 21, 2007, Toto was shredding off shore on an F One 7.5 m Bandit kite in 25 kts. with 1.5 m waves. The beach is fairly steep currently promoting some undertow hazards to swimmers.

Toto was about 30 m from the beach when he heard the swimmer screaming for all he was worth panicking big time as he was drowning. Toto calmly responded, towed the guy into shore and promptly headed back out again. He mentioned the rescue in passing to Uli later on in the day. Way to go Toto, AGAIN!
