Have you not read anything the OP has said on here?Matteo V wrote: ↑Mon Mar 19, 2018 4:16 pmThe instructor makes sure that the student:
1. is familiar with the QR and Leash safety system and has practiced it.
2. is aware of what will happen to the kite when the the primary and secondary release is activated.
3. is not flying too large of a kite (wind speed) for the students first time flying a kite
4. is aware of their surroundings and the instructor is the eyes of the student for the training ground area while the student is only able to focus on the kite
5. gets instruction on how to counter the normal intuition to pull the bar in and NOT PULL THE BAR IN when the kite suddenly yanks the student in a gust
So going from a 4m to a 10.5m is different??? The overwhelming advice here is to seek instruction. Then to use a small trainer to understand how a kite works. Then try to find a kiter in the area. If none of those things are possible for the OP, then the OP is taking their life into their own hands. A simple Youtube search will tell you what can happen in the case of mixing inexperience with a depower kite.
My advice is for the OP to get a trainer and NOT FLY the 10.5 until the OP receives proper instruction or at least some help from a local kiter. That is the only safe advice. Others have taken the dangerous route of just going for it on their own. Most have succeeded, some have wound up in the hospital or dead. The OP can decide to use your advice and wind up at one of these outcomes regardless.
He lives in a poor country with no kiters around for miles.
Sure, it sounds very convienent to hire a private kite instructor for the day. But not everyone is as fortunate as you are to have the luxury of a kite instructor your first hours on the water.
I am telling the OP everything he needs to know to teach himself in the safest way possible. And that involves getting some sheeting skills and releasing of the kite skills before he even attempts to fly his 10M. And I am telling him to do it with the smallest kite possible, a 4 meter on a lightwind day. Which they even sell 2.5 Meter inflatable trainer kites.
I am also telling him to do it on a lightwind day. What part of that do you not understand? The risk on a lightwind day with that size kite is minimal.
Much much better than your way of learning on a trainer kite that doesn't teach you anything about sheeting, doesn't teach you anything about water relaunch, doesn't teach you anything about FLAGGING THE KITE OUT. And you want him to go straight from that to a full 10 meter kite?
You are way off with your thinking, and I hope nobody who wants to self teach themselves about kiting follows your harmful advice.
