67102how to switch sides without getting lofted?
- Oct 1, 2003Ok, here's the scenario: A couple weeks back, I was walking my kite
back up the beach. Wind was onshore on a 45 degree angle, so I was
walking up with my kite on the beach side of the window about 4
meteres from the ground. After walking back up and getting ready to
head into the water, I had to switch over to the other side of the
window because someone else was walking their kite up and mine was in
the way. I began to switch sides and will going through zenith I got
lifted up and thrown 20 feet down the beach. I was a little shaken,
but otherwise ok.
My question is how do I avoid this? I'm thinking I should just go
slower through zenith next time if I have to switch.
