In this quick clip, North Kiteboarding’s Tom Court, to show you how to self-launch using your quick release leash and your car. The same technique can be easily applied to any static object that isn’t going to move when you attach a kite to it. This technique also allows you to check your own lines before launch and is a great alternative at secret spots or rock launches when you don’t want to rub your leading edge over the ground. No Mates, No Worries!
