Re: Best hurricane ultra high wind 40 plus knot kite

I been out in 55 mph winds a few times and found that if the lines are too long you get a huge bend in your lines between you and the kite. I ride 20 meter lines when its hectic. One line break in wind like that and its over. Here is a pic of some super steady 55 mph wind.

Re: Boots: Any safety tips?

Dont use the handle pass leash attachment on your harness with boots ( or ever really). Its a lot harder to turn around in boots while you are getting dragged backwards by the kite. All so you could get pulled down and under while wearing boots. Honestly you should never hook your leash to the back...

Re: Drag launch tips, rear line tangle

I have had that happen if you drag perpendicular to wind, I think if you open kite a bit and make sure you drag 5 to 10 degree downwind first so the lines are away from wingtip then the kite rotate and opens up then you can walk upwind to launch. Nailed it! Just make sure your bridles are cleared a...

When its bright out i tend to squint a lot and get minor head aches. Just pay attention to your eyes. If riding makes them sore then it's probably good to prot...

Im checking my lines as i wind them up at end of session. 25 seconds to walk lines is fast! That would be cool to see.

Re: Why doesn't everybody side rig their lines in launch position?

Why even take your lines off? I leave mine attached. This started doing this because of snowkiting. But it helps to have a bar for every kite.
