Peak5 tangle and relaunch

Postby lezo » Tue Jan 23, 2024 5:34 pm

Here is video about my tangle at Flag Beach, Fuerteventura a couple of days ago. After untangling I have almost succeeded to relaunch when the other foil arrived in my lines...

Fortunately, I could return the kite early and kept the leading edge out of water all the time. When everything was cleaned up, I drained the water from the tips and could relaunch.

So with a bit of luck and a clear objectif, i. e. keeping the leading edge out of water all the time, single-skin Peaks can be relaunched even after a complicated tangle.

It was filmed with a wide-field objective so check the HD version for details:
