WHAT method of , (Self-Launch) can a guy use in high winds, that doesn't allowTopic author from nwkite wrote: ...
My brand new kite was assembled with the incorrect bridal. I was flying an 8m kite with a 12m bridal installed. Essentially the front lines were 18-22" longer than they should have been, thus, giving the kite no depower and making it sit far back in the wind window.

Thats not a great example because the kite probably looked perfectly fine. I bet you that you would never see an error like that. A bridle error will probably not be seen until the kite is powered up. Absolutely no one here measures the bridles of their new kite...and barely anyone would know what the bridle length should be.hightimes wrote:I wonder if parachute buyers jump out of a plane without checking the chute first.
Standard procedure to test new kites or bars in safe conditions first.
Caution in this case is far from a snowflake... What if you bought a brand new car and the first time you turned it on it takes off and smashes into a crowd of people killing several of them and then you as you come to rest against the side of a building....? Who's fault is that... Should the driver have the vehicle checked out before hand? As a consumer we have to trust that vendors are in fact selling us goods that perform as we expect them too as experienced kiters would.Dr Makani wrote:No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.
