Is there not enough space to use short lines?

Thanks, but even if drifting on SUP while trying to initially launch, the kite takes in too much water while getting lines out/ready to be light enough to launch off of the lake...
Two things that might work for that :

1) DrLightWind posted this, on page 2 of that Thread i mentioned.
Looks like an easy way to keep the lines sorted ; for Launch anyway.



2) Pre inflating your kite with a 12v Bilge-blower , should give
you more time, before the kite starts to take on water . I use
one of these for my Peter-Lynn kites on the dry-lake bed in
really light wind, (3-5-mph); got a 3 cell, (3-S) Lipo battery that
i Never charge over 95%, and it works Great !
