Clever!

You may find winding the bridle onto the bar one turn past the first pulley or two will make for less tangles when you’re setting up, though if you wind too far you won’t be able to lay out the wingtips fully.

I’ve had a similar idea for launching from a boat using those big foam mats people use out on the water but really foils lay out/float on the water without any real problems and it’s just not needed.

Landing on Lowwind Conditions is not a Problem... with controlled Backstall.
You are right I had a Chaos sorting the Lines the day before, but that is the big Plus of this starting Ramp..
You can look on the Lines and start without stress or sunken Kite...
Thanks for comm...
Plurr....
