8mts cabrinha turns on itself

Postby flimps » Sun Dec 22, 2013 1:43 pm

I have an 8mts 2012 cabrinha kite which turns on itself every time I fall and don't release the bar.

1) any way to avoid this? (apart from releasing the bar)
2) how to solve this problem in the water?

thanks

If the kite is stable in normal conditions you probably have your hands not close to the center of the bar. When you crash you should avoid to pull one side of the bar....so keep your hand close to the center.

If i have interpreted correctly, it turns inside out and inverts? Then you need to pump it up much more. I might have interpreted wrongly though so more detail please
