Re: Best place in Hatteras for kids to learn and hang out

The Kitty Hawk Kites site has a pool and each unit has a hot tub as well.

Re: Self-rescue question ...

If you have a kite with a safety line attached the the 2 front lines (cab IDS, epic renegade, etc etc), walk up your safety line to the bar, wrap that safety line that has pulled out around the back of the bar to fix it out (so the kite can't re-power up), then wrap up all four lines up to the kite....
