Dissclaimer many people think you need to learn with a trainer kite and take at least 5 hours of lessons before you can try on your own. Use this video at your own risk. Look this video on how to use a trainer kite www.youtube.com My accent is from Estonia or Eesti. Also the video generated a lot of feedback from experienced kiters which you can find on google. The main issue is the leash, many people are religious about always attaching a leash and most of them don’t know what they are talking about. 1. always use leash on c kite, or on a 5 line kite, on a bow you can get away without one 2. always try to choose an empty beach with noone around and low wind. then you dont need a leash. if wind is strong or there are people you need a leash. 3. leash on a bow is complicated and dangerous. make sure you test out landing the kite on a leash if you do decide to use it before going out. understand what is a suicide configuration and why is it called so. If you have to pull the red thing in an emergency leash will prevent the kite from flying into people on the beach and killing them. The leash part is skipped in this video.
