hi guys !

I ride my 2015 vegas with the wakestyle bar on fifth line mode and every time I crash, I have to relaunch by using the fifth line. The kite never relaunches with the rear lines, is that normal ? is it a matter of settings (I ride with hard setting and medium depower) ?
It's not annoying on flat spots but when there are waves...

Have you tested your line lengths to make sure they're setup correctly? I rode the 2015's last year and don't remember any issues. How about grabbing MORE rear line? Kites will reverse launch / fly backwards if you grab enough line

Should be able to re-launch backwards pretty easily I think, Vegas flys backwards all the time.

It's like being good at video games, except you can't get paid for it.

You have to make sure that there is enough wind to re-launch backwards. Im my experience if there is any water behind the leading edge of the kite after a crash... you will struggle to get it off the water, especially if its light. 5th line is always easier...

I own 2 2016 relaunch sucks! best way to get it out of the water is pulling on both rear lines, pulling on one will get you nowhere, and yes the fucking thing flyes backwards all the time...

Never been able to figure out how to rear line relaunch a C-kite, thinking I might too just need to grab MORE rear lines. Wouldn't your chicken loop just come out?
