- Jul 31, 2005thanks again Chris !! really appreciated the responses
since i don't know any kitesurfers.
on my old kitebar (with arm leash to bar), i did as u
stated and it always worked. with this new bar, same
method (as u stated) but i hope the kite doesn't fly
away before i grab that bar again, since the leash is
a spinning leash attached to the chicken loop (no
leash for a few seconds).
