Landing a foil ?
- Does anyone have any advices about how to land a foil unassisted?
I use a few Advance/ConceptAir kites and have no problem with
launching them alone, but when I come to deserted part of the beach
after session, it always become kind of a struggle. If there's a helper,
I can bring kite down to the edge of window and let him catch it. But
if there's noone around, kite touch the ground and starts to tumble into
the power zone, twisting lines, and I have to run to stop it. Luckily,
I managed to win this race so far, but who knows what might happen
Any tips, tricks ? Thanks in advance !

release it to the leash, or if you can't do that then just hover overhead &
release it to your leash (assuming it's set up properly to completely
depower). Then you can just attach the kiteleash to the boardleash & walk
to the kite.
