If you can’t hear me due to the wind, I’m saying that when you fall while kite boarding, you should put your arm that you’re falling on, out so to deflect the water from hitting your ear drum. Also if you fall and immediately start body dragging, then by the time you slow down and switch directions, you’ll be up wind of your board. Many people fall and try to steer the kite with both hands while sending themselves down wind, and usually whacking the side of their head into the water.
