Poststrings, if I read you correctly you have a bar permanently attached to each kite...Is it difficult to wash your bar with fresh water this way?
If you must wash because it is part of your maintenance routine ....
....not at all since the bar/lines are on top of the folded kite with about 2 feet of loose lines coming out of kite central leading edge
Personally my kitesurfing is all done on sandy beaches....
.... and after a session the wet bar/chicken loop always go on top of kite canopy then will go on top of my surfboard
Wet bar/chicken loop never gets to touch the sand
Sure some sand can still appear on moist lines after a session....
... but it comes off rather easily by hitting bar with palms a few times once they are all wound up
The kite along with bar/lines can all fit in the bag with the bar lengthwise on top of kite .... so it is easy to reach for if you want to wash
After washing position your bar vertically against a wall for example overnight to drip dry... a couple feet from your kite in the bag
