It's called the wave grenade.
Good system I use myself.
If you want to ride 5 line and end up with the kite down in surf and want to flag it, flag it on a side line.
Flagging on 5th isnt good in the surf cos all the weight of water goes to the centre of the leading edge, and will cause damage.
For me I never flag out the kite. I stay hooked in and with 5lines have never had a wrap. With line tension the kite wont roll, and even after being mowed down by some heavey waves the kite will relaunch immediatly.
Ive got away with this method on fuels since 04 and havent had any kite damage at all.
The fuels fly 4 line as well, and as Surfingwithkites says the reactors work for him.
