Re: How do u land ur foil kite?

If it's not too overpowered you can grab the rear lines way up high and backstall it down to the ground. Walk towards it to make it fall faster and make sure you don't tomahawk it accidentally down really hard. When it's super windy this gets sketchy fast, but if you can do that you can attach your ...

It's so low here, and people spend so little time outside that latest medical advise is to take VitD supplements to make up for it! 20 minutes in...
