How do your kite settings work?

Ever wondered how your kite settings actually work? Why does changing an attachment point by an inch or so either way have an effect on the kites performance? and which way do I actually move the knots to do what?

In this short video we chat with Red Bull King of the Air legend and all round nice guy Steven Akkersdijk from Core Kiteboarding.

This video co-incided with the release of the Nexus 2 kite and hence we’ve used this kite for the demonstration.

The rear line adjustments in theory are almost an exact replica between different models and brands of kite. Core tend to offer some extra customization options through their CIT system with differing front bridle attachment points. Some other brands will have a basic version of this also.

Well worth a look and always great to add a little to the knowledge bank!
