What is the ideal length of trip line for a 15m kite?

Hi Just got a second hand 15m kite and want to know if there is an ideal length of trip line for it so that I can avoid any major spin in the event of loosing it? Also, what do you think is better (safer) - attaching leash to your wrist or your harness?

Hello there smiller,

i dont think people keep using security leash on their wrist, i wil suggest dont. first, waht kind of kite did you have? what kind of safety the control bar has? Normally after a while ago most of kiters attach the "handle pass leach" or a security leash at the back of the harness, make sure that the leash has also a release system in case you need to get rid of the kite in extreme circunstances.

this is just my opinion, keep asking and wait to have some other criteria from other riders.

cheers
ch
