      Hi there all

      Can anyone explain to me what depowering does to the
      kite "aerodynamically" and why then do you not feel the depower when
      flying on land, i thought you would feel the kite pull less but
      apparantly not. Any explenation would be appreciated.

      also how would i setup a kite leash.
      And is there any guidelines to choosing the correct size bi
      directional board as in planning to make me a board.
      Thanks
      Chris

      It lowers the angle of attack so it generates less lift. For leash setup, depends on the system. Here s a center leash system:

        You may need to copy and paste a couple times to get the whole link
        since yahoo stinks.

        In terms fo the board, need more info from you. What winds, body
        weight, size kite, etc...
