ha thanks man, I did indeed need to replace the LE side lines after a few flights. Had a hell of a time getting the kite stable again!
going to check the links you posted and hopefully get it right.

Looking very good!
Those attempts aren't because of your "beginner'ness", the bridle is the main reason for that behaviour in your kite. The speed and small radius of the tight spin turns indicate that the towpoints on your bridle are too close to the spine. They need to be further apart.
Bridle tuning can be a time consuming exercise, BUT it is very rewarding when you find a good setting. Download this PDF for a simple and logical way to find a good bridle setting.
PLEASE NOTE: I have exaggerated the amount of adjustment from the starting point in the document photos. Make small changes (1 cm) each time you alter the bridle
I hope this helps
