Best way to self land them as far as I can tell is to sheet out completely with a kite tip touching the ground and attach to CL to a heavy object and let go the bar. Run to the kite and Grab!

Oh shit situation I can only release the kite with my setup, I DO NOT think attaching anything to the back lines is advisable whatsoever

See... it's like the kite took 2 steps forwards and the safety took one step back. We might as well have no leashes on these things 'cause they don't do anything!

No offense, but I have heard all the arguments both ways about a zillion times fellas (and abortion and evolution and alot of others) and this is a kiting forum.

Any news on the Wavetray?
I just got sponserd by cabrinha, so soon will have a 7 and 12 switchblade.

I rode the 12 crossbow and fell in love with that kite.

only rode the waroo once and was a very short session, didn't get that good of a feel for it. It seemed nice but i don't like how fluttery it is.

Yup, how much are you willing to offer? If my brother ends up getting into kiting i might pass them down to him

but i doubt he will so how about $250 K/O

i don't think you want it complete cause you have a 17 inch bar right?
