That happened to me 2 days ago with my WAVE 6.0 because I didn't wait for the
kite to get up high enough before spinning it around (2 lines, leading edge
touch down!) and one tip got twisted kinda weird in the briddle (first time
that's happened to me.)
I still got it back up by pulling real hard on the loose side and then freed
tip by pumping the whole thing a few times.
I've been dropping my kite about once every 3-4 sessions and found that with
more than 8 knots it's pretty easy to get it flying again even when it looks
bad...all in a matter of a few seconds.
Still, I have to say that I'm not looking forward to my first relaunch
attempt after a wave drills my foil.......
