Now, that is depowering!
- I went out in a blizzard today with the Waroo 5m.
Made a jump, crashed and when I looked for the kite, it was straight
down wind and started climbing up across the power zone. I quickly let
go of the bar and expected the kite to pull me somewhat. Nothing! The
kite just sort of "moved" across the power zone and barely pulled me
even 1 inch.
Now that is depowering and I assumed all other flat kites, SLE, bow,
etc. are similar.
With such depowering capacity I would assume that once one learns how to
"let go of the bar", accident would be drastically reduced?
