Supaez,, regarding your method of launch with lines permanently attached... won't the wind cause the LE edge to bend or kink in places as you're inflating and running out your lines? The kite will want to keep it's shape in spite of the wind trying to flatten it out kinda thing... ie with the up wind wing tip being pinned down with sand the down wind wing tip will be left to flop around in the wind.

Also .. because of the way the kite is situated relative to the wind won't you need a quite a bit of sand in higher winds, more so than with the traditional weighted wing tip launch technique?


Thanks for the question......and i will reply soon i promise :D
The 5pm sea breeze just kicked in and i need to get a sesh before dinner (this is 3rd day in a row)
Air temp 84..water temp 82.4...wind SE 16 mph (140 degrees)....waves 2-3ft with "no drift" :P

........................... :surf: :sun: ...............................................................................................


Did you lose interest in the question?
