  • 4 Line Kiting expand_more

    4 line kites are a serious challenge delivering more power than 2 line kites. So much so they need brakes, hence the extra 2 lines.
    By using brakes you can get a dazzling array of spins, turns, stalls and some very serious power by 'dead spotting' the kite in the strongest bit of the wind.
    If you want to get into kite buggying, this is the ideal next course to do. Whilst attending a 2 line kiting course beforehand isn't essential, it will better to prepare you for the course ahead.
