Choccy - Try stepping forward for ladders down - it takes the sting out of the turn.

Sailor is right Choccy. Stepping forward is the answer. At the beginning I was all over the place with my co-ordination between my arms and feet. In the end it's timing and taking into account the wind strength.

Sorry you were not able to make it David E.


Good to hear that you got together guys.

No prospect of me picking up a kite anytime soon - things were improving for a while but have deteriorated again :blue_sad:

One way of improving the ladder up/down is to really fix your eye on the kite tip that you're turning around - pin it to the sky and drive the rest of the kite around that point!

Well I am still hoping to buy him one sometime this summer.

Get well soon David, you’ve got lots of mates thinking of you.

Gary, I'd willingly exchange drinking refreshing cold beer (& warm English ale!) for the freedom to fly Rev's again. True :o

thanks for the kind words guys
