Re: Keep lines attached to inflatable kite?

It all comes down to personal preference. My anal-retentave nature makes me fold the kite very small. That isn't really possible with the bar/lines still attached. I did this with my foils too. When I rig, I take the bar downwind (against the "accepted" method) and walk the lines out 3 times. This i...

line wrap

I wish I could learn from your mistake but a similar thing happened to me a couple of years ago. I was clearing my lines after a wreck. I felt a line around my ankle so I simply reached down and removed the line, I thought. I felt like I was free but I only loosened the loop and added another creati...

water skis

In the early years of kiting skis were used to a limited extent. There are a few pics of the old rigid kites, a modified windsurf boom and of course 2 lines using water skis. I'm sure some ppl out there have experimented with skis since. The ergonomics of a board provides better transfer of power to...

kite v poleboard

A while back, I was on the water with a friend of mine we call T. I was kiting and he was practicing for an upcoming windsurfing event. Some french guy kept jumping very close to my friend, barely clearing the mast yelling, whistling and pulling lame kung-fu kicks etc... We moved upwind to avoid the...

sknowkiting

Snowkite vids are out there but not very prolific. You need to search a bit for them. Check http://www.flyozone.com for online stuff. Generally, you need less kite than with the water since there is much less friction. You don't need all that much space but the more the better IMO. Flat wide open sp...
