Just to confirm your line connection is correct.

Front lines are your steering lines they go to the ends of the bar.

Rear lines to the center.
...

Good luck.
OOPS -- i think i may have gotten that backwards ; (OR) you did ?

Re: Unhooked self-launch for safety

Who would launch a kite for a person who failed Donkey-Dick-101 ? Unless Ya personally know the person , and their ability ; it would be hard to know what his/her ability is. I had a lady ask me to launch her at Mohave, (was blowing 30+) ; she looked competent , but when i asked her what instructio...

Re: Peter Lynn Hornet 2.0m sucks!

Will it fly on just the front two lines ?
If yes, then the rear-lines are probably/maybe too short.

Re: Fatality Czech Republic May 21th

The faster we figure out what puts people at the highest risk when kiting, (and why) the quicker someone else in the future might get saved with what was learned. ... Gusts can be very very nasty there at certain wind directions due to terrain and plenty of tall trees. That's called mechanical turbu...

Re: Kitemare

... I know I could have released the kite and just swam in, but the risk to others was too great. I don't want to hurt anyone else because ultimately the sport I enjoy is really dangerous. I make the decision to go out and put my self at risk I don't need to put anyone else in danger for my choice....

Re: Core xr5?

... Ok ok, fine. Core will make a bad ass kite that everyone can afford. They aren't in it for the money, they are here because they care about people and want everyone to kite. The owner makes no profit at all on anything, and that's because he really cares about the kiteboarding community and wan...

Re: Core xr5?

Yes, the graphics will be different, and at least 1 thing will be done to the bridle, canopy or struts to make it fly different. Then Core will put a 2000 dollar price tag on it and call it the most bad ass kite on the market. Your last reply was 25'th of Apr , (21 days ago) ; you come back & the f...
