Which unhook leash setup do you use?

Murdoc ask me to do a poll on this questions.

Very interesting indeed!

For 4 line setups: the leash is directly attached to one line


depending on conditions:
maybe sometimes you want to practise a lot, then you do suicide, if the conditions are safe, but normally you use a dorect leash.

i use suicide generally all the time (except over 26knots) as i don't have 5th and can't be bothered undoing my lines all the time... i kite in onshore winds 24/7

Toby,

Could someone define (drawings or pictures would be best) what a
suicide leash is?
