Yep, I was the guy who was parasailing in the birds sanctuary.
A bridle line snapped, the front line went loose, and the kite got into a rather nasty spiral but I made it to the beach pretty quickly, and I don't think I spent more than 3 minutes there, just enough to wrap the lines, and walk back. No police, ever, and frankly, nobody around, I guess a bird watcher with good binoculars got pissed from some distance.
What a great day, by the way, the waves getting progressively bigger, and better organized (well, for Montrose), steady wind, warmer water than air, 10 kites in the air at times. Even Scottty betrayed MC, and showed up there!
