Awesome video :thumb:

Not sure I understand how one can "clinch" the board, without holding it (like the "no handle" and waveboard) - but as you show here, it seems to be possible maybe relatively easy 8)

HAVE to try this next time out :naughty:

The only time it is needed though, is when someone is "washed ashore" typically, or got a defect of some kind (or beginners of course).

But this happens now and then, so great to see these "hints" about how to :rollgrin:

If you are powered, and can control the kite with one hand - easy.

But when you need two hands on the bar, to get going - it is NOT that easy...

8) Peter

I've only gotten a beer a few times and never from a cute kiter chick :cry:
Nice vid. I like grabbing the boards by the foot strap. Smooth!!
Next vid.... ways to rescue a kite. I do it but always feel sketchy until its deflated.
