For example, take control bar colors.
If solid red was ALWAYS in the left hand, the kite launcher could see and prevent the "upside down bar" launch.
But what if its a Cabrinha and the bar is black and yellow or the Naish bar is mostly white?
Is fashion more important than someone's life?
How else does this effect us?
Do you have two different brands of kites?
Did you just change brands?
Do you notice a newbie making a mistake?
Are you trying to help someone in trouble?
What can be standardized for safety?
- Bar color- Solid red is left
Line colors- Red left, black right, center tbd
Goof proof connectors- Knots on front lines, larkshead on back.
Bridles- Red is left, black is right.
Chicken loop release- Push or pull. Loop, ball, or sliding collar?
Leash release- Push or pull
Kite knife pocket- front right side of every harness. Is Mystic Warrior the only one who figured this out?
It's time for manufacturers to get together and set some basic standards.
