RE: [ksurf] Kites for schools and beginner to intermediate kiters
- er that would be a foil.....a nice stable kite such as a PL bomba or FS Voodoo are just what you need. The FS kites relaunch hyper easily easily as well so it takes that fustration out of the equation for beginners. -----

How about a kite that doesn't fall in on itself when
the wind drops, and so doesn't experience line twists.
I am finding this a frustrating problem while
learning. (I have a 2004 cabrinha CO2)
Any hints on how to prevent this would be great too...
