This is the same Kite I learnt on back in 2000 check that bar out...how did I ever live?
Very similar board too

For those that have heard me say it took me around a year to just stay up wind...this is why. The kites were sh*t, constant problems, every session something would break, difficult to relaunch, zero safety, good times!

We are going to pop up to the bike skills park at Bryn betws. Wendy is keen to do some cornering practice on corker . I may spend sometime working on jumps in the park . Not to far back if it hammers down , I still don't have my waterproof back from repair ! Oops

I had my first lessons on a kite like that in 99 with axel air in France . Couldn't get on with it way too scary , as Marc said no safety de power or anything . Bar about 4 ft long ! In fact I gave it up for a few years and went to buggies ! Back to kites and water after a few years

Fortunately I never lowered myself enough to buggy! Wink
I preferred swimming downwind

Don't think we will bother with the park but it does seem to be brightening up sunny
