Preparing the kite for launch
1.1 Select a free clean space. Away from people, trees, bushes, power lines, buildings and other things within a radius of 100 m or more. If there are other riders nearby, make sure that your dome, lath and unfolded slings will not interfere with anyone. Make sure that the size of your kite matches your weight and current wind conditions (see the instructions for the kite). Remove the kite from the cover and place it with the balloons up, with the first balloon perpendicular to the direction of the wind.
1.2. Pumping start with transverse cylinders. The pressure in the bottles must be sufficient for the kite to keep its shape. Check this by bending the barrels. If it is difficult to twist the balloon, it means that it is well pumped, but be careful: the pumped aircraft is more comfortable to burst. Do not pump cylinders! Different kites use different devices to facilitate the closing of the valves after inflation. In Cabrinha, for example, balls are used to block the base of the valve nozzle. Many kites use nipples in plugs. If there are no individual devices, it is necessary to siphon the balloon a little, since when closing the air still a little bit out.
1.3. After all the cross cylinders are pumped in, inflate the front cylinder. Attach the leash of the pump (rope glued to the pump) to the loop in the middle of the front cylinder – this is necessary so that you can quickly inflate the kite with both hands, without worrying about blowing it away. If there is no hinge on the pump or there is no loop on the front cylinder, either hold the kite with one hand and pump up the other or ask a friend to keep the kite by the front barrel. When inflating the first bottle, watch the fabric protecting it. If at some point you notice crumpled up, stop pumping immediately. Your barrel is twisted. This can occur from inaccurately folding the kite, or a factory error (when packing your kite – the balloon is bent). Refer to your kite’s instructions to straighten the balloon.
1.4 The slats and slings of all the kites are different, but you can highlight general rules that will help you not to get confused when tying the slings. Begin to unwind the lines from the kite, ascending to the wind. Having thrown off the slings from the bar put the bar on the ground with that side UP, which should be facing you while riding (see the instructions for your kite). Pass the lines between your fingers so that they do not get mixed up and walk from the bar to the kite, thus unraveling the lines between them. Having untangled the lines between them, lay them on the ground so that they are not confused.
When choosing a place, consider the strength and direction of the wind. Best of all, if the wind blows along the coast, at an angle to the beach or the coast. The pressing wind is unacceptable (except for shallow waters). What is the reason for this: firstly, you should always be able to return to the shore; secondly, the wind that comes from the shore has high turbulence and is not suitable for skiing and also makes the launching and landing process more dangerous, since in such conditions the kite behaves unpredictably. Better to choose a good kiteboarding school. It’s necessary for your safety. You can find it in kiteboarding schools review.
Start and landing area. To launch and land a kite, choose a wide beach, free from any obstacles and, if possible, with a minimum number of guests.
Water area The skiing area should be free of algae, nets, and everything that can interfere with the water restart of the kite. For beginners, shallow water is needed, no more than a meter deep. The bottom should be clean from human-made debris, stones, and other interference.
3. Theory of the wind window and the basics of kite control
Zones of a different kite are located in front of a person in the direction of the wind. The figure shows what the rider sees in front of him when the kite is at its zenith (the resting point on the top of the wind window).
With a sharper transition from one edge of the power zone to another, or when you throw a kite from the zenith, the kite falls into the blue area. Here the snake gets more wind pressure in its belly. You start to pull forward in the wind. This is the work zone where the kite is located most of the time while you are gliding at speed. While driving, you can bring the kite back into the green area – thereby reducing your speed or …
By a sharp movement of the bar, drive the kite into the red zone of the maximum thrust of the kite. It is located at the base of the power zone – right in front of you, where all the power of the wind is directed. Here the kite turns into a mighty dragon with high potential.
The zone of maximum thrust is used by riders for sharp acceleration while driving and when performing many tricks on the kiteboard (for example, new school tricks in wake riding style).
The blue zone, and especially the red zone of maximum kiteboard thrust, is not affected when flying a kitesurf, especially when the rider is on the beach and there are no obstacles in front of him (other passengers, plankton sunbathing in the sun, houses, walls, wires, cars …).
In the red zone, the kite can not start newcomers !!! and it is not recommended that riders do this when they are in the water near the shoreline, as well as when an obstacle arises in front of them (other passengers, bathing plankton, …).
Everything described above works when using kites of a particular area in its working range (for each kite there is its own working range wind range) wind speed.
When riding in overdose red zone is spreading to the side. The blue and green zones are diminishing, with hurricane winds turning into lines. As a result, you get rage in your hands, which, if not properly managed, can lead to tragic consequences.
