Hello.. what are your comments on four or two line kites... Some people say that 2 line kites only work in strong steady winds like the ones on Maui? Whats more fun 2 or 4 line.. I personally think that 2line/wakestyle looks more fun.. fast aerial tricks,less lines, dont have to be stuck in the depower line.. it looks more free. What do you guys think?

depends on your style and experience.

also depends aon wind conditions - i prefer
chickenloop-riding.
some others fly 4 lines with fixed centerline (4 lines to adjust the power without landing it)...

if you have a very gusty homespot, you'll have more fun when flying bigger kites, because you can depower in gusts and still have enough power between them ...


you also can get higher with the chickenloop,
but there are riders who call this cheating :wink:


well - you gotta try it out -> most two line kites can be converted to 4 lines ...
