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


In this lesson we cover:

  :  Assessing flying site
  :  Setting up kites
  :  Checking equipment safety
  :  Launching and landing
  :  Landing in an emergency
  :  Simple kite turns
  :  Brake turns
  :  Reverse launching
  :  Building up traction
  :  Packing away safely

As with all our lessons we use a tick-sheet scheme so we can identify any areas that you may wish to practice.

(Your tuition fees include the hire of all equipment and insurance.)
