Awesome Video! I was very impressed how you were able to just unroll your lines and launch your kite without having to uncross them first.

If you keep your lines always attached and pack and unpack carefully you can do that without a problem.
I never detach my lines and i just unroll and go about 90% of the time now. occasionally a few spins of the bar or pass the bar thru the lines.

Thanks RocketDoc,

It comes from teaching in the Bay Area, where it's frustrating seeing all that wind and water but not having much land space to set up. Give it a try in waste deep water sometime.
