Haha, now your actually getting at what will likely end up the advanced under appreciated trick to master.

You wanna start and finish dry, you gotta master the strapless air.

Yeah that's a good one. I call it a dry hair session. Its super hard in hard out conditions.

To the guys who say you need to crash every session or you're not riding hard enough. I say your not good enough to do a session without crashing. Take on the challenge and see how hard it is to achieve! Sure you can potter around being risk adverse but thats not the point. Get out there and do a solid session without crashing. You have to pin every turn and every manoeuver with precision.

PS Edt. I'd be suprised if i crashed my kites 11 times per year!.... Who crashes and cant still fly their kite while crashing????

I crash my kite enough that relaunch is still very relevant.
