Tie the bridle ends securely over the (small) harness dowel with a double knot.
Fold the kite in half to find the center point of the bridle and then tie the loop. If the bridle isn’t exactly centered, the kite will fly left or right.
Keep a few feet of line on your handle at all times. The kite line is not tied to the spool, and your kite will fly away if it is unwound to the end of the line.
Use cotton, twisted nylon or polyester line for your kite. A fishing swivel reduces twisting of your line. Any line under tension can cut your hands.
Be patient when you get knots or tangles in your kite line. Tangles are a nuisance, but an inevitable part of kite flying. Find the special “Kite Line Detanglers” in your group and let them shine!
