It's trim, not depower.
Read my post again Karen
No reason to re-read it. It's not "De-Power" it's "Trim". De-power is a marketing BS term and so misleading that most people don't understand what it actually does. You are correct in what you say about trimming the kite in lower wind. But you don't have to trim the kite with modern kites like that for low wind because there are 3 trims for the kite. You have the knots you use to connect your lines with, your trim strap/rope/click bar, and the bar throw itself. Dive the kite pull in to generate max pull thru the wind window. On the up stroke push the bar out to let the wind up under the kite so it does not backstall.
I found another Karan. Did you check my post for spelling errors as well?
What happens when you pull the trim line? Does it take power out of the kite? So was i wrong to say de power the kite a little?
Because when i am overpowered i have been pulling that dangling line thing all these years. Am i doing it right?
And when the wind drops i should land my kite and change knots on the pigtails so it doesn't stall? Is that what your saying?
Or just sine it constantly? You beginners got all that?
I think i got it now.
I am wrong you are right.
My post was a constructive tip to help beginners with something that is usually done incorrectly. I wasn’t posting to be nitpicked.
