I have a bit of an issue.. my kites fly perfect at the start of a session but after a few powered loops or little while of riding they start to backstall. Then next session same again. I have to depower at least 50% by the end.
The only issue or discrepancy is one of the front lines (flag out line) was about 1 inch longer than the other.
I have tuned the lines to be all the same length as per instructions. I have tried wetting them and it doesn't make a difference.
Could it be the depower line? Do the front lines stretch and shrink with every session?
(Also if you know of anyone that has a set of 23m ozone lines or know someone that might have a switch kites bar and lines please let me know and I'll happily buy them ? )
What kite make and model, and year? What bar and line lengths? What style? What winds?
Thanks for the reply!
ozone c4's (v6) 2017s and some bought in 2018 9m 10m 12m and 14m.
Bought switch kites krypto 2 2023 9m& 12m.
Ozone wakestyle bar 23m lines. 15ish kts to 35+. Always the same issue, sometimes it turns faster one way than the other.
I can unhook at the start of a session no backstall no worries. Then I'm almost fully depowered by the end of a session to keep the kite from flying backwards when unhooked..
