For sure there are risks with both ways....but launching the kite with it pointed (pulling) towards the direction you want to end up is the least risky solution. You might get pulled off your feet and drag a few feet in the sand but you will NOT catch big air unless you want to.
NEVER take it to zenith on (near) land if you don't have to.
Hey did not mean to quote this,,,
Ok I think it is perfectly clear, you guy's insist on launching in a gust onshore site,,THIS IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM,,you live in S-cal,,,you got cars,,so the issue is not which launch method is most likly to kill you the issue is you are too lazy to drive to a better launch,,,
YOU ARE THE PROBLEM,,,
OK fine your nuts,,nothing new in that,,,BUT now you are trying (whining) that your buds are more nuts????
it is the battle of the half-wits,,,
My take,,,if your nuts your already fucked,,
Mel your about safety,,,your pissed about safety,,,your fucking pissed that the athority's are up your assNO,,,,,Wait you are happy,,,now you can see the people you think are nuts go to jail,,,
Do you see where this is going????
you launch iresponsibly,,
you want to see your fellow kiter's hauled to jail,,
you want them to agree that your right for saying they are wrong it is pue fucking ego,,
If you where a safe kiter you would drive to a safer launch,,,but NO<<NO
you want to be recognized as a SAFE KITER,,you just are NOT
that is the Truth,,,Thank GOd the athority's are on to you unsafe lazy knuckle heads
your efforts ARE the REASON for the trouble,,,
You however are blinded by your ego,,
THAT IS WHY you are dinged up and whineing
