Your "kite losing" topic brought to mind the realm of "kite finding" which has several meanings. Finding a kite in the kite stores, in kite-plan books, etc. is one kind of kite finding. Another type of kite finding is the finding of a lost or breakaway kite. A whole realm of techniques may be involved in "kite finding."
EnergyKiteSystems.net cares much about the challenge of breakaway kite systems, as a dragging tether could bring huge costs to property and lives; so there is much effort to be sure that breakaways do not occur.
