Snowkiting is real fun spoiled by damned re-launching problem. In summertime kite just rolls over due to resistance of water but snow doesn't create any resistance at all and kite just slide away driven by wind. Nothing can get it out of this state except unleashing bar out of hands but that is not solution.
May be some additional backward re-launching line or what?
Any ideas brothers?

well - an opencell softkite is cheap :wink:

or try to get a mosquito pro ks 1 - for about 150$...

pay attention with a dropped tubekite, too much dragging on the ground can damage the fronttube....

a backwards-relaunch line is better, but leaves you with the kite right in the powerzone....
