Does it only work if you are left-handed? Just kidding.

I have no idea if most kiters have a bar for every kite, but I have two bars for five kites.

Plus I regularly kite alone, which would be a lot more tricky.

Good tip. If only I had six bars instead of one.

Fastest way to setup you kite - do not disconnect your bar.
Next week: pro tip how not to tangle your lines: wind them around the bar! Look the bar ends conveniently and mysteriously hold the line!
Following week: tired of your feet slipping around your twintip board? You can buy footstraps or bindings! You can even have one for each foot! Amazing
Next month: what to do when you are overpowered. Did you know kites come in different sizes? Have you thought about trying a smaller kite?

The thing here making it a no go, you save some time, but take someone else's time holding the kite while fixing the lines in both directions.

Yeah...that looks more of a faff than undoing them and wrapping them up. I may have to walk them once but meh!
