Re: Respect and right of way

Sorry you had this trouble, theJoe. But here's another thought. Why not do some extra transitions or maneuvers just to avoid situations when the right-of-way rules apply? When a rider is coming towards me, I can usually tell well in advance if our paths will cross close enough for right-of-way rule...

Re: Any place to buy a sand anchor that's safe?

I've used one of these a few times and it works really well. Great quality fittings as well. I have no affiliation with them, just rate it highly. http://www.kiteanchor.com Without meaning to be cheap, that just seems like too much money for what it is...but would it even be much cheaper if I made ...

Any place to buy a sand anchor that's safe?

I've been researching online about the best sand anchors and many people say none of them are very safe. I'm somewhat comfortable with self launching, but the beaches I go to have a lot of shells and I'd rather not risk damaging my kite, so that's why I'm looking into the sand anchors. Would people ...

Re: Had my first sketchy kiting experience- kite inverted and tangled lines

So if you see your wanging full on down wind and under the kite. Bar in hard and fishpole the front hand. With any like you will loop or redirect the kite back into the wind window before you crash. Can you kinda explain what you mean here? So when this happens I should pull the bar all the way in?...

Re: Had my first sketchy kiting experience- kite inverted and tangled lines

I was forced to pull my final release and held onto it trying to avoid losing my kite. I was able to go hand over hand until I got to my kite and self rescued, but I have a bad taste in my mouth after this experience. What should I have done? thanks Thanks for posting that, I'm interested in the re...

Re: The Safety Topic: please post your experience and advice

What do you do when you kite crashes and inverts but then launches, leaving you with both steering lines crossed with both center lines? In the past I would put kite down and drift to shore then re-do my lines but this is not always an option. The other day it happened and I decided to fly the kite...

Had my first sketchy kiting experience- kite inverted and tangled lines

Yesterday when I was out kiting, it was blowing good and really powered up on my 12m best TS. I was practicing jumps as I'm relatively new to the sport (started last summer). On one of the jumps I mistimed my take off and launched downwind leaving the kite far overhead with slack in the lines. The k...
