Go up the centerline of your low or high "Y" with confidence...kite on wingtip is waiting for your move
I remain hooked in and get kite LE down securely
I mentioned at the beginning of this thread that this whole thing can be done unhooked. I'll just mention it again since we're mostly in agreement that the method shown in the video is a bad idea, since the thread continues for some reason. I have never tried the method shown in the video and didn't think it was the best way, but the more glaring safety issue was watching her run up to an unsecured kite while still hooked in to it.
rig the correct size kite that you know you can land by yourself
Come in to shore before a dangerous wind increase situation
Nice idea, it doesn't always work in reality.
In reality it's one of a few options. Wind ramps up suddenly, make a choice to ditch in the water or on the beach.
Or, controlled self landing. Once the kite is sitting on edge, grab the center line assembly above the bar and unhook. Risk to kiter immediately goes to 0. Then proceed to self land to the best of your skills, risk free. One simple intermediate step that defuses all danger. It will put your mind at ease.
