I didn't measure the depowerstroke. It was the original bar for the Vegas06.


Too bad you don't know the depowerstroke on the tested Vegas06.

My (conventional) re-launch on snow with the Vegas:
Pulling the 5th-line to turn the kite, then walking sidewards so that the kite is at the edge of the wind window, then start.

My re-launch on snow with Shockwave and Waroo (this will work also in the water):
Pulling both steering lines and the kite starts backwards, when it turns to one side, take the bar. It's quick and easy.

I don't do the walking sidewards. Just steer one side and pull 5th more. When too much power I just pull 5th more. Works great IMO. Especially in very light winds with the trailing edge in the water. For sure less gracious and probably more stressing on the kite in the snow.

Thx for the reply.
