Upgrading My Trainer
I have a 2.0 meter two line trainer. I have taken lessons - body drags and upwind practice in water. I purchased a 12 meter bow kite hoping to get in the water and practice more when the conditions are right. The other day I took out my two meter (Slingshot trainer) and feel that, though better than nothing, I need something that approximates the experience I had with the four line kite but is safe enough to practice with on land. Any suggestions?
I have an opportunity to purchase an 08 Cabrinha Convert 5.0 meter but being a LEI I'm not sure that this would be safe enough to use by myself on land - although it might make for a good trainer on the water.
I thought about getting a bigger trainer (3 meter or so)...almost all of which are two or three lines. Do three lines approximate the feel of a four line? The HQ Hydra 3.5 meter seems like it might be a good choice - can use it in the water too.
