Depowerables

Text Size  :  1 2 3

Depowerable kites use a bar which slides back and forth increasing or decreasing the power whilst you are harnessed into the kite. Ideal for an intermediate kite landboarder or snow kiter they can generate incredible amounts of power and lift.

Because it is a very different way to fly compared to 4 line kiting we have put together a specific short course to ease you into depowerable kiting and its various safety concepts.

This is an next logical step for an intermediate flyer who has already attended either our kite land boarding course or kite buggy course.

-------------------------------

In this lesson we cover:

  :  Assessing flying site
  :  Setting up kites
  :  Different kinds of harnesses
  :  Kite safety procedures
  :  Adjusting power trim
  :  Launching and landing
  :  Landing in an emergency
  :  Simple kite 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.

(As an advanced course, please bring your own kite to be taught on as models can vary greatly between manufacturers.)
