How to Untangle Inverted Kite Lines: Without Landing!
A forum post in the Seabreeze.com.au Kitesurfing forums this week reminded us of a great video about how to fix this, but first, a quick tip on preventing Kite inversions in the first place.
Kites invert for one of two reasons; they either fall out of the sky, losing tension on the lines, or they hit the water and you continue riding towards them, also losing tension on the lines. To prevent it, easy! Keep tension on your lines. Experienced kiteboarders are in the habit of edging hard into the wind after a kite crash, this gains ground upwind, and also keeps the lines tight.
But if you’ve forgotten the above, and emerge with a twist in your lines. Here’s how to fix it, with the help of Jake Kelsick over in Antigua.
