Re: Kite lines not tight while launch- no control

The kite in the pic above is facing the wrong way. The kite should be facing into the wind, not down wind. Great way to get killed! I hope you just misdrew this.

I've been thinking about buying two kites and boards, one for light winds and one for heavier winds, which will probably be mor...
