Launching alone is not highly recommended in Kite Surfing. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced Kite Surfer, you have to have assistance. However, if you try doing this, master first how your kite's safety system works, wear proper safety gear such as your helmet, and follow the guidelines below.
Launching alone can be a tricky thing to do. Though it is certainly not advisable, it is still important to know what to do if you do not have an assistant when launching a kite. Before launching, check if the lines are connected correctly and that they are not twisted. Determine the wind direction and lay out your lines at a 90-degree angle to the wind. Make sure to take your time in planning your self-launch, and ALWAYS double check your lines before attempting to self launch your kite.
After the lines have been checked and the bar has been positioned, the kite must be setup for the self-launch. Turn the kite over and hold it by one wingtip. The wind will automatically push the kite in the right position for a self-launch. Bend the wingtip over and cover it with sand, using enough sand to prevent it from being blown away. Pick up your bar and be sure that your quick release systems are working properly and be ready to use them in case something goes wrong. To be sure, de-power the kite by pulling the de-power strap. As the wind starts filling up the kite, walk backwards and increase the tension on the lines. At a certain point, the wingtip will flip over and the kite can be piloted up. You can give the bar an extra pull to help the wingtip flip over.
