what's the easiest way to shorten these lines to ~11m

Postby MaximumAC » Thu Mar 07, 2019 1:04 am

I have no knowledge of working with lines/splicing etc. Is there a simple way to shorten these lines to 11-14m for use with a Peak 4? Thanks,

unpick the sleeve - slide it up to 11m and do an overhand knot so you can do a larks head

Be suprised how easy it is to splice if you have some guitar string laying around...

I streetkited with a standard set of Flysurfer 6m extension lines. It was good fun!

Nice! That's actually the plan, inspired by the Kitefinder video where they skate with a 9m Peak 3 on 11 meter lines. Looks like good low wind fun.
