Relaunch Part II, Advanced Tutorial

Relaunch Part II, Advanced Tutorial

The 2nd part of our relaunching tutorial look at more advanced techniques. We cover the reverse launch, trip and turn launch, wind window positioning, apparent wind issues, and then we look abnormal relaunch positions, such as an inverted kite.

This video shows some non-standard relaunching methods. There is an increased risk of tangles and death loops compared to the basic methods - therefore much of this video is only suitable for experienced kiters.

Very nice and complete.
In light wind I also sometimes pull on one rear line and the opposite frontline to help the kite turning on its wing.
