forum for kitesurfers
We're just starting testing of a new type of line but one of the features will be safety marking of the lines. Often very dangerous situations are caused by simple switching front-to-back lines.
These simple tags can be shrunk on the ends of most popular lines with a hair dryer. More information is at: http://www.wetstuff.com
Kite schools: these are free to you - just send an email (no scammers!). They're only $1. per set of 4 for individuals.
.....just wait 'till you see our new lines. No more limpies..no more stiffies! Later.

Good idea! Even the color coded lines are easy to get reversed when you're all excited and maybe at a new spot with a new kite or many combinations of distractions in your head. So labeling the lines is one more step towards insuring better safety. Thanks for the lead. I think this type of labeling would be good as the industry standard.

very good idea indeed!
this should help to connect your lines the way it should be.
