Yeah I have done this a few times, typically after rolling a kite in the surf.

A tad more difficult when no ones holding your kite in 25 knots and you have to dis-connect your safety.

Yet more stupid tips. You're much better off taking the 2-3 minutes to land the kite, run out the lines, disconnect/reconnect the back lines, check, launch and continue the session.

If you can see that all you have to do is pass the bar through then you can do that. It's hardly a tip.

That Stupid guy in the video has another stupid guy holding the kite while he recommends a "few" stupid seconds to fix the tangle Versus some twat who wants to undo both back lines and ask another stupid guy to help him launch again

I wonder if you have to disconnect or if you can just ditch your board and swim through your bar.

If your board went through the lines when you got the tangle you MUST pass the board back through the lines otherwise it just doesn't work

So how is it a tip? Come in, get someone to hold your kite, do stuff to untangle, relaunch, go kiting. How does that come close to being a useful tip to "untangle lines"? The lines aren't even tangled. It's just the kite through the lines. Where does it add knowledge?

Nothing new here. Been doing that **** for years.

It's more amusing doing it solo with the parked at the edge.... Haha

The intelligent kiters would obviously know it's not for them...
