the 15.5 is kind of slow, normally.
but you shoud try to fly it with shorter lines. I tried it with 20 m lines an I had a blast! It turns so quick, you won´t believe the difference. Unfortunately you need a little more wind, since with longer lines you get more power. Therefore you can fly it in stronger winds. But then you have a really great time and get big airs! Isn´t that why we love this sport?! :smile:

Hi,
there are two ways of set ups for relaunching.
Either you attach a fifth line to the bar and attach it to the left and right tube besides the middle tube, where Naish already puts a setup for it. Or you can buy the Power Steering Booster from Naish. This is like the bridle from Wipika for their Airblasts. You can also build it by yourself. But with the Power Steering Booster you make the kite faster than before. I would recommend for better water relaunch the fifth line, it is cheaper. And if you want to make the kite faster, use 20 m lines and you won't believe the difference!

Enjoy
Toby
