I really enjoyed flying those kites that Brett and 321kiteboarding demoed. The 17 and 19, man those can really increase your kiteable days!
Yes Supa is at beach a lot and no QR freeze up
Very careful with bar and QR when i put bar on sand when i rig kite and QR is dry
Very careful with bar when i self-land not to get any sand in or on the wet QR
Once the kite falls LE down at self-landing i walk to the kite with QR still on my hook .....
....then i detach myself and put the whole bar on the kite canopy
Walk back to my surfboard to go get it then put it on sand deck up about 15 feet from kite
Go to the kite to get bar that is clean...wind lines around the bar a bit..and put on top of board
Throughout the whole process of deflating and packing down to wet QR remains clean of any sand
By the time i go out again next time or next day i have a totally clean QR...and i like that
The video is correct...you can pack it with dry sand...wet sand and the QR will twist and work
