Hi Peter - the video's prob not showing it clearly enough - but you simply lay the board across the top of your chickenloop / depower rope - then reach over the top of the board to the bar - you can use both hands so possible in light winds :thumb:

biggest problem i get - is what the other person does with their kite - if they keep theirs high so I can keep mine low then it works fine :D

Thanks for making that video. I'm sure it will help many get their equip back.
Now if we could only get kiters to put some contact info on their gear, most would get it back. Maybe a six pack?
