Usually I will unhook as soon as I am on the face of the wave and start surfing and then hook back in and turn around and do the same thing for the next wave. So to answer your question I usually unhook between 8 to 25 seconds depending on how long down the line the wave is. If the wave was two miles long then I would unhook the entire time until I reach the end and then hook back in, but also that depends on how windy it is. If I am way over powered then it is very hard to unhook unless you pull the depower strap to depower the kite. Or even better get a smaller size SURF.Poster: Bob Marley
How long can you fly unhooked like that for before it falls out of the sky? Also how many feet of trim line do you need to pull before it can unhook? Looks awkward like other bridle kites are unhooking but cant tell from a pic.
