Nice session today. This is nothing special. On a Moses 633 wing.

Sorry for link. Couldn't embed mp4 file.
Nice! wish I could get around to toeside, gave up and doing touch-down gybes instead.

Silly question, why do foil kits commonly have that "strap" connecting the outside steering lines just above the bar?
That's a "brake line". If I hold the bar in and pull strap back to the bar and grip both on the bar, the kite back stalls to the ground. It pulls in rear lines. It's a way to land the kite. My other franken bars have balls on the rear leaders. But I like the strap better.

I'm getting better at turning this thing around, and trying a little wave riding.

Thanks for posting verty.

You can see the wear on the depower line in the video. Had to go sometime.

What was your thought not winding your lines on the bar first then breaking down the kite?

Love the song.

Was afraid to go downwind too much while winding lines on the bar. So tried to make everything as fast as possible. By the way lines wrapped my leg so I had to swim using only hands. Next time will wrap the bar.
