I’ve been “just getting into” kiteboarding for quite a while now. Too broke to take lessons or buy my own gear I was talking to a friend of mine and he said, here! Have all of my stuff!
Now I know what you are thinking. You’re going to die! Take some lessons! I assure you that I have had a 2 line 3m kiteboard trainer kite for a good number of years and I have been using extreme caution, making sure I know my gear (as much as possible anyways) and the advice of friends who kite as well.
The trouble I am having is this kite seems to be rigged wrong and I cannot find any instructions on doing it correctly. It will fly over my head and fall out of the sky if I drive it straight up to the top of the window. I believe I need to make the back lines shorter and my main question is: Is this rigged totally wrong?
I am thinking that it should not be attached at the middle of the extension. I think it’s made to be attached with 1 end to the kite and 1 end to the lines. Also, What are the A, B, and C points on the line side of the extension. Basically in what conditions should I attach to which point.
If anybody has used an old diablo more than a few times: Any information would be greatly appreciated!
