If you are going to attach your leash to a partially unwound bar it sounds like things could get real fun if your launch goes FUBAR. What is the advantage of attaching early? ...
Means if the kite tends to fly out of the wind window and front stalls due to a wind shift a hard drop of wind force or a missed maneuver.
No, please never ever use any kind of anchor, not on the land and not on the water, it just can be extremly dangerous in many ways and benefit is close to zero. It is very bad and stupid that some firms sell anchors for land with their kites. I also have had a few bad experiences on land 15 years ago and a view years ago two brave guys drowened in a river in my home town, when they tried to ride in that river with board leashes which both "anchored" them self on a tree or something!br44 wrote: ↑Sun Oct 29, 2017 5:41 pmAlso have you explored using a small boat anchor? If installed in advance (by swimming), I imagine that a small boat anchor with a floater would largely eliminate drifting downwind; which could be helpful when the launch spot is tight (trees etc) or the wind onshore.
