Hey Guyz. I went out for a little bit yesterday. Nothing big just some lite wind, and I was Practicing with the kite some (still learning), and I was doing fine, but sometimes the kite woudl swing around and one tip (usually the left) would fold in, and my kite would begin to drop. After a little correcting, it would open up again, and I would be on my way.

Do you know why this was happening!

ThanX!

you told it yourself:

if you can practise on the beach,
there's too little wind blowin' feor your kite.
foldin in tips is one of the things that happen then ...

don't worry, if you go out in enough wind, the kite will stop doin this.
