Now the 5th is wrapped around the middle of the kite and it is nearly imposible to relaunch without shredding the kite. Pretty much that is the end of the session till you get back to the beach. If you never have had it happen more power to you. It can happen and will happen.
I have had that happen to me dozens of times.
Usually its easy to sort out, you just release the kite to the 5th line und then pull in one stearing line a few meters. The kite will stretch itsself flat on the water and the 5th line slips around a tip.
