With no depower you usually stall the kite a bit while sheeting in fully. so then you ride with the bar sheeted out, between fully sheeted out and halfway sheeted in is where you find its Power. Or you depower it alot and ride it that way. its g...

Re: making a safety line with a bungee inside - ideas

I was also che...

Re: Help re-tuning a Sonic 2, am I on the correct path? Bridle/mixer

The 3 outer, upper sail PMAs one knot in. The outer PMA gets 2 knots shorter. I will try this whole adjustment, it makes sense, but had a question about your instruction with the PMAs. I understand the first part "3 outer upper PMAs one knot in" but then "the outer PMA gets 2 knots shorter"? Did yo...
