      Low aspect kites are easier to relaunch because they are wider and have more
      kite sticking out of the water. If relaunching is really a concern you can
      add a 5th line with a y at the end to make a relaunch line like many foil kites
      have. This is really good in small area where you do not want to waste the
      water to get the kite up. If it takes too long you would be at the other side.
      It is pretty essential with inflatables on snow. North 2002 kites already
      have a piece of webbing sewed to the ends of the two struts on either side of
      the middle and these are for attaching a re launch line. you can sew a piece of
      webbing onto any aother kite and it will also work. Mine is a little
      assymetrical so the kite always turns one way. The bar works backwards until the
      kite turns over.
      It only takes a couple of times to get the hang of it.
