1393Re: [ksurfschool] Changing Free Air 2 line to 4 line
- Apr 13, 2001JD,
You want the center leader to be about around 3 - 4 cm
longer than the side leaders. You should set up your
leader lines so that they are long enough to fully
depower the kite you are using. For example, I am
going to lengthen the leader lines on my 31" AirRush
bar to allow me to fully depower the new ARX 21.5 that
I purchased this year.
I hope that helps!
