I’d like to know what’s the safest way to self-land a Rise safely when being in shallow water at a safe distance from the shore?
I realized (the hard way) that pushing the safety release with the leash attached to the trim line and rolling the lines on the bar is not a safe self-land option since the kite has still a good amount of power and can reengage at any time when rolling the lines…
Pulling the handle located at the Y connection of the front lines and then pulling the front line until I can grab the leading edge and attach my leash to it is safe enough but it is hard on the hands to pull a front line all the way to the leading edge, especially when the wind is not light…
Another way would be to pull a good 4-5 meters of front line (with the handle at the Y), roll these 4-5 meters on the bar and then finish rolling the lines until I can reach the kite. I am not sure if this method is safe enough… Could the kite reengage?
Thanks for sharing your safest self-landing technique.
