KITING TIPS – LINES

1.LINES

Graphic photo below so please be warned but we would have put it there to show you how dangerous lines can be if you are not aware.

We had 2 incidents with guys getting hurt with their lines and I must once again stress how dangerous your lines can be so here are a couple of tips that might one day help.

  • Try avoid your lines in the water at all costs
  • Avoid lines of the kite in the shore break – especially the kite which can envelop you – so stay clear.
  • If your kite crashes in the shore break then let you bar go and run down and physically pull the kite out the           water – don’t try pull it out with the lines.
  • If your kite gets washed up in the shorey, always approach the kite from the back and be aware of what waves       about to wash the kite onto you.
  • Never wrap the lines around your fingers
  • Use the Self rescue if you want to swim your kite in
