This has happened twice now, and I’m wondering if there’s a good way to prevent/fix it. Basically, I aborted on a jump today and the kite hit the water and flipped a couple of times, not sure exactly how many times, etc, but basically it was leading edge down and facing back towards me and into the wind. I got the kite to relaunch, but the outside line was caught on the inside of the inside line.
The kite still flies, but I can really only turn one direction (which luckily was back towards shore) and there’s no real way to fix it.
So my question is, is there a way to keep this from happening before relaunching or is there a way to fix this once it happens without landing/relaunching the kite. I can’t see a way to fix it once it’s back in the air, but is there something I can do to prevent it to begin with.
Like I said, it’s only happened twice in over a year riding, and I’m not real sure how it happens, but….....it’s a pain especially in cold water and head high waves.
