LandKite at Montrose Beach

Postby jojy » Mon Oct 11, 2010 11:41 pm

Light wind day, not a lot of power, but the problem was the VERY wet send which causes the board to sink into it.... :roll:

All in all, it's my first test, hopefully more to come.....with snow as well

And just for the record, I'm flying my 4m kite :wink:

I sold my board recently never much use. Try it hooked in it will shift your center of gravity giving you a pivot point to lean back on. Lean back on the hook pushing your feet forward like your edging in the water...

Polo, normally I would do it hooked, but this is not a de-power kite, the only way to slow down in case of 'fast need', is to leave the bar and let it stay attached to your hand.
I'm planing to get a 6-7m foil kite, I can use with a "normal" de-powered bar.
Trust me, it's not that fun to be unhooked :wink:

Get rid of the pillow and use your 9m LF lOl. Or just put a loop on your bar so you can hook in?


Polo...
