Hi, I need help!
I can get going on board briefly when I bring the kite down and then when i start bringing it back up, I lose speed and fall in the water! This happens quite often and I end up drifting downwind. Why!? Do I need more wind, a quicker kite??
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
You need more wind if you have the kite set at max power already and this is happening. If you are in the chicken loop and this is happening, get out of it. Ride the fixed loop and adjust the strap until the kite feels most powerfull. Ride like this and stay out of higher winds that require the use of the chicken loop until you have good kite control.
