i know people we also use this for self launch some times, its ok but there is a lot of tension on the chicken loop when you go to unhook it, so becarefull not to let go!!!!!! conect you leash first
self launch1205 viewsbar hard right, you begin to walk back into the wind. Very important your back into the wind
self land no one around1160 viewskite hooked up to bag
self launch1144 viewsfor re-launches, we always turn the bar the oposite way we want it to go, so in this case we want it to go left[also because it is always safer to launch toward the water]
self launch1124 viewswhen turned 90 degres, the kite will start to flap, but the sand behind the leading edge will hold in place
self launch1112 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 needed
self land no one around1106 viewsafter the kite is down and you are walking to the kite, if you want to stop the kite even quicker you can do so by pulling on one center line to land the kite[make surte you are clear of lines and your harness doesnt grab a line by mistake]
self launch1087 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 launch

self land no one around1034 viewsno that you no you are clear, you need to grab a center line
self launch1009 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 power
self land no one around994 viewsafter the hard tug on the center line closest to you the kite stays down
self launch986 viewspile sand up behind the leading edge. make sure the more wind the more sand. no sand gets in the kite, this is used to hold the kite in postion
self launch983 viewswalk back with the bar hard right[this is because you want the kite to relaunch left, always is oposite] until the kite moves
self launch959 viewskite faces into the wind, while you set up your lines
