Re: [ksurf] Re: Rescue tecniques
- Can you deploy safety with leash, safely? Can you roll
up one side of the lines until kite depowers? If the
kite does not seem like it will relaunch by itself and
it's pulling you to shore, let it, but be very careful
you could have a uncontrolled launch especially in
shore break which could loft you. Otherwise, cut from
kite unless your endangering other people. Unless you
feel you have no chance to make it to shore, then it's
best to stay with kite. Try to pull yourself to the
kite while rolling up lines to avoid tangleing
yourself. Usually if you roll one side 5 or 6 times
untill the kite is parallel to wind, hence depowered,
you can roll start to roll up both sets a little
If you decide to let the kite pull you to shore cut
loose before getting too close to shore as long as
your not endangering other people. Hopefully someone
experienced will be there to help you.
