Re: older kiters prescription glasses how does everyone handle it?

i had the optician put on some sort of transition layer, which turns sort of dark purple when outside, but then i read that it actually does more harm than good,,, as in it makes your pupils dilate and let's in even more harmful rays because the glasses don't block it well, like high quality sungla...

Re: north rebel pigtails

Re: how to self land using the lower center line method

Well done using a 14 sqm in 20-23kn Yes compared to pulling the top line only in high wind in order to yank the kite belly down and try to make it stick on LE it is better Yes there will be less pull from the kite on its back with the lower line grab but you are only holding one line Walking to kite...
