4 line kiting

Text Size  :  1 2 3

4 line kites are a serious challenge delivering more power than 2 line kites. So much so they need brakes, hence the extra 2 lines.

By using brakes you can get a dazzling array of spins, turns, stalls and some very serious power by 'dead spotting' the kite in the strongest bit of the wind.

If you want to get into kite land boarding or kite buggying this is an ideal course to do. Whilst attending a 2 Line kiting course beforehand isn't essential, this 4 line course will give you more flying time to build up your skills

  :  Assessing flying site
  :  Setting up kites
