Chicken loop problem

Postby Blaest » Tue Sep 06, 2005 10:12 pm


I've just started kiteboarding, and am already so hooked to the sport. I have been out in the water for some 15times now. But the last two times, and not on purpose, my chicken loop opened up by itself. This has happened 4 four times now and its pretty annoying, since I have to relaunch etc... :-?

First I figured that it could be that the wind was too strong, but I was out today in very very light wind, where I could barely keep the kite up in the air, when it released itself again.

I use a North 5th element bar on a 2005 14m Vegas. I tried searching the forum but couldn't find anything. Anybody have any explanation to what the chicken loop is doing ??? I'm perhaps connecting it uncorrectly?? Thanks in advance! :wink:
