Re: [ksurf] Looking for easy relaunchable kit
- 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.
This is a link to photographs and a link to a video at another site showing a
5th ine in action.
