Stand in one place, and parallel to other flyers, to fly your kite. It is designed to fly in very low winds, so no running should be required. Watch where you are going if you choose to run.
Let the kite line out slowly, and use slow release and pull motions or quick pumping depending on the conditions.
Let out more line or step towards the kite in a sudden wind gust. This spills wind from the sail and will save your kite from crashing or from snapping the line and disappearing on its own adventure without you.
Wind the line on the handle to land your kite. In strong wind you can walk towards your kite (make sure there isn’t anyone below the kite!).
Walk quickly towards the other flier (with the kite still in the air) and hold your lines close together if your kite line gets tangled with another kite. The tangle should “move down” so that you can unwrap them.
