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...













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