Excellent information SalmonSlayer.
Thank you for sharing.
Mistakes happen at all experience levels, but almost all of these mistakes happened because of a lack of knowledge of launching fundamentals.
Something simple like the following could avoid a lot of these problems
The kiter and kite holder should have a quick conversation to confirm positions and signals before positioning themselves 25m away from each other and yelling instructions that may or may not be understood.
I am not an alarmist, but it seems like an accident is waiting to happen there. I would be hard pressed to go to the ES next holiday weekend for a session. Hopefully things get better as the summer progresses.
