Hi I'm learning again, yesterday I dropped the kite in the waves (decent size wind swell) it rolled and looked all tangled real quick so I pulled the safety instead attempting to launch it again.
Kite flags to single line so am in no danger, but it was windy as bro close to 30 knots and the kite still has a lot of power when flying 5 mts in the air on the single line.
What is the procedure there if no one is around to grab the kite, just man up and pull the kite in by the single line?

Next time, try to launch it if there are no tangles around the bar, if it goes crazy flag it. And yes just drag it in with the safety line if its that windy, then when it settles walk up the safety line and grab the kite.
