- Mar 31, 2002Thanks Gregg. In your experience with the kite, was it easier to
backwards re-launch it by letting go of the bar totally or could it
be accomplished by pulling on the middle strap? I couldn't seem to
get enough pull on the middle strap to turn it over, but the New
England water was cold so I didn't spend too much time with it.
Thanks in advance.
