boat is off to left side of me, but ahead of me so it pulls me forward and away from kite. kite is off to right side of me, flying as if their was wind. if you viewed it, or us from air, it would look similar to a somehwat flatened out V with the boat at one tip, kite at other, and me at point of V. sorry if sounds confusing, but it works, i do it. most kitesurfers who witness are usually pretty amazed and say that they dont see how we do it.On 2002-08-29 12:44, Royce wrote:
How do you get that to work. Wouldn't you be towed backwards by the boat or if you were facing the boat be backwards to the kite. I can't see a way to face the boat and kite nor hold onto the handle and do it.
excessive loads? i dont think so, not in this situation i describe. have never broken a line, pigtail, harness, towrope or any other while performing it. boat driver must have sense and reasoning to know not to throttle up if i jump, trying to see how high he can make me go. understand, we are kitesurfing with the kite, using the boat for power, we are not manlifting or parasailing.
You have been fortunate to have had no breakages, incidents or accidents in your reported two years of experience with this. You must focus on keeping loads to a minimum and keeping the flier low.
