5400Flat kite for teaching
- Oct 4, 2006We are finishing off our first season teaching with flat kite (Waroo
mainly) and here is our report:
1- Don't teach a student with a C kite (too much trouble)
2- It is much easier and safer for the students to learn with flat kites
3- The students will have no problem using a C kite after the lesson
4- When teaching water relaunch, only teach the standard method to
relaunch the kite, that way, the student will have no problem using the
C kites afterward.
5- The successful rate is very high almost 100% while the
successful rate with the C kite is around 80%
6- The student learn much faster and have more confident in the kite
7- If you need to teach the student to use his own C kite, use a
flat kite bar, it will gives much more depowering capability than a
regular C kite bar.
