self land no one around872 viewsit is better to put sand in before you go out, i have done it with the kite up on a day where everyone left, but was not as easy, so dont be lazy if you think you will need this.Apr 30, 2006
self land no one around908 viewsthis bag is filled half way with sand, it wieghts about 60 lbs, and works for me up to 17 mph, once above that speed i found i needed more. remember, this is designed for the advanced rider, who comes in and know one is there to help them land.Apr 30, 2006

self land no one around883 viewskite will move up and down, i have even had it lift up and down off the ground.This is not a kite anchor which you leave you kite like this for a long time, you hook up and get to your kite, gust and other factors say the longer you take the more risk you haveApr 30, 2006

self launch1080 viewskite has moved you stoped, now as it rolls you take a step foward. Notice how the kite has pivited and not slid or used any space, so can do a tight launchApr 30, 2006
self launch1002 viewskite is ready for launch, takes flight and you push out on bar, depower and control as you walk towards the water. i have found is better to walk towards the water with the kite at an angle. This is beter then at 12 or nuetral. lessons the chance to get lofted and with the kite to the side a bit if you let go of the bar, it goes down fast and no powerApr 30, 2006
self launch1103 viewsafter you walk back when the kite starts to move, stop..........let it roll and take one step foward-this is for light winds, as it is harder, you will find on stronger winds the step foweard might not be neededApr 30, 2006
