Post subject: Kite-tastrophy part_deux Pic's included :(

So I took the kite out for the second time this year hoping there was enough wind. I had no idea there would be so much set up involved with a kite when I purchased this thing last winter....

Anyways... I feel the lines/rigging were wrong. I can control the kite just fine, but it kept stalling in the air. Anyhoo... here are some pics from a few hours ago..

I ended up slicing my foot up real bad on something in the water, had to throw in the towel early...

no pic's of my bloody foot...



%20 %20 %20 %20 %20 Got%20my%20butt%20out%20of%20the%20water%20for%20a%20while...%20but%20it%20was%20short%20lived... %20 %20
