Had a realy bad launch this weekend.
Could have ended really bad.
So I'm looking for advice.
Wind was 17-20knots. Flying a 2002 11 2m Wipaka, I'm about 60 kg.
So got someone to help me launch, kite was at 90 to the wind.
He let go, the kite started going up then started to sink. It drifted right in to the wind window. Got craze powered up, and draged me 150m down the beach!
I couldn't reach the trim strap. Finnally managed to crash the kite.
Had to change my shorts and thank the wind gods that the wind was cross shore, and not on shore.
Scared shitless now.
Wasn't badly hurt, like I said was very lucky.
Please let me know what I should of done different, and maybe I will grow the balls to try again.
