Kiter stuck in an updraft/thermal.

Came across this on KiteForum. Kind of like the video posted of Adam Koch In the Kiteboard Videos gallery, but this video has the guy (Erick Eck) over land, and like 200' high! I guess this is a clip of an extra from 13 Daze.

Ok, now I'm freaked. But he was unhooked, he should have let go while he was like 5 feet off the ground. Or maybe thats his idea of a thrill. Still, that is scary, makes a guy like me, as a beginner, think twice about going out.
