Have just been acquainted with a "Shockwave" and have found this kite a huge amount of fun.
The fact is, for 80% of time it does what you ask of it , but for 20% it gives pure chaos.
Is this normal? Oh I do hope so.

Any advice would be appreciated,

Mark

Trust me Gary I do.
When it does a fly away it's just great to recapture the tension.The direction is often it's own and it can do it with malice!

However this is just the best kite ever if your flying alone..
If it falls over when setting up, or you just have a horrid landing, leading edge into the wind.
Give it a tug and it's ready faster than you could wish.

Not for a lot of us... But I really love it.
