Apparently the actor Cliff Simon was killed in a kiteboarding accident at Topanga Beach in California. RIP and condolences to his loved ones.


Does anyone have the details of this accident?

There was a video out there of it. It is a rocky beach and it appears that when he came out of the water he may have slipped and accidentally looped the kite. He flew through the air at low altitude, however, went a fair distance and have landed head first. The area he landed in did not appear to be asrocky as the area he got lofted from. When I realized what I was watching I chose not to go back and rewatch.

Very sad to hear about this happening to another kiter. Exiting the water after probably having a great session and then it all ends just that fast. RIP...

Crying or Very sad
