Just pull on one ouside (rear) line and it will flip up on its side and take off like any SLE kite. The Helix 14 is a very fast and responsive kite. I am very happy with mine. :wink: Chris Glazier When you pull the rear line, do you have to pull the line high over your head or do you just pull at w...

I have the EXT and have tested the shinn wave and as far as I've tested, it is easier to get up on the EXT than the Wave in light winds. I'm talking about 11-12 kts.

Then pull on one of the rear lines quite hard will lifting the line over your head as high as possible. This is VERY importa...

I read whats in the manual and all it says is to pull on one of the rear lines and the kite will launch immediately. Just out of curiosity, am I better off being verticle on the water add some resistance to the kite to make the lines a little tighter, so should I lay more horrizontal to that I get p...

TECH Questions - Naish HELIX 14m

Hello kiteforum posters!! I have tried the search, however could not find an answer to my question. I own a 14m Naish Helix and apart from a few niggly things, overall I am very happy with it. One thing I am struggling with is with the relaunch... I know I am really surprised 'cause that is supposed...
