very easy to do with peter lynn as they are the most stable kites around...

here are two pics of guerilla 18 + 13 + 13 for manlifting in 5 knots...

and 2 venom 16 in the waves of djerba in 7 knots...and you can still jump with this, not high but it takes you ages to get back down... :thumb:

PETER LYNN POWER!!!! :thumb: :bye:

This is a G13 and a G10 stack in very light wind. It's kind of a rush to see those kites up there but a hell of a lot of work. I haven't done it since.

How do you launch 3 kites at one time? :think:

You set the two or three kites side by side and connect the top kite to the lower kite with ~15' lines (TE lines about 4-6" longer). The bar lines are attached to the lower kite (knots set above the lines to the upper kite). You then pull the lower kite away from the upper kite until the downwind lines start to tension. Then it's just a matter of peeling off the kites just like you would with one kite.

8m is getting a bit long....
Yeah, 8m was a little long. The lower kite always seem to want to tip forward. We did another test with 3m lines. I still noticed the pull to be really strong downwind. The jumps are low and long.

Are you guys able to stay upwind well with Peter Lynn stacks? The pics posted look really rad! :thumb:
