Postby scillyboy72 » Mon Jul 14, 2008 1:11 pm

Hi all , i'm a neebie surfer and i've brought a cabrinha convert 9m kite and i seem to be having problems rigging up the kite to the lines cos the picture in the book is nothing to what the bridle looks like , i learnt on a globe kite and the rigging was totally different of how i was taught to rig up a kite , if anyone could give me a few pointers all would be grateful , steve in scilly

The best thing to do is, completely take the bridle away.
You dont actually need it. Most of the better kiteboarders dont like bridles on their kites

Then simply, connect your lines directly to the kite.

Steve if you check Experimental Player's posts, you will see that he has a phobia about kites with bridles, which is why you should ignore his advice.

If your kite is new, you should easily be able to rig it from this user manual.

If that is not easy, maybe you need to talk to local kiters.
