      Pulling in the depower strap has the effect of
      depowering the kite, which is more for fine tuning the
      power of the kite and when launching and landing
      (depower as much as possible with the strap and then
      unhook completely from the bar). Always launch and
      land unhooked. Pulling in on the depower strap causes
      the kite to fly more from the front lines. When you
      let the bar out, it also depowers the kite, although
      more than the depower strap does, depending on the
      amount of adjustment the depower strap has.
