forum for kitesurfers
I just bought a '02 9.4 Lift on closeout and I would like some advice on rigging it properly.
I have a 2003 Cabrinha bar 51cm (not powerlock).
I've heard that if these kites are not set up properly, they can fly backwards and over sheet.
I would appreciate any advice.
Thanks in advance,

Set the back lines longer than the fronts, the tips should be paralle for full power. In light winds if you pull the bar to close to you and over sheet, the rear tips fold in causing kite to fly backwards. If kites backs deep into window, push the bar away, the kite will fly to the front of the window. A great kite once set up right, pleanty of back line slack, check out the airush forum for more info.
