The pulleys on earlier Switchblades tend to fail after a couple of years. Contact your Cabrinha dealer to get free replacements if yours are the older ones. The newer pulleys have a larger diameter spindle shaft and two ring sliders replace the pulleys for the outer lines.
- Check my gear for any weak points
- Possibly replace the pulleys and or some lines
- Keep the line knife handy and practice retrieving it from harness
- Practice self rescue
- Use a surfboard in northerlies - at least you can paddle it to shore and tow the kite in
