Dig like a pro

If you've forgotten the techniques you learned at the sandcastle competitions of your early childhood, here are some tips to "make your hole" easily and at the right depth.

For a good KiteHooker, digging, placing the base of the KiteHook and plugging the hole does not take more than a few minutes :

Keep the leashes wrapped around the base, otherwise they will get in the way between the edge of the base and the sand you are draining.

Dig in shifts: after a few shovels, when you start to lose your knees, move 90° around the hole whenever necessary. The closer to the hole the sand you remove, the easier it is to fill it...

As explained in the instructions of use, the hole depth will be a minimum of 33 cm. The base of the KiteHook being 33cm long, it can be used to check the depth.

The final depth will depend on the density of the sand. A hole in dry sand should be deeper than a hole in wet sand. Basically, the easier it is to dig, the deeper you have to go... Do not skimp at this level, it is what will determine the tensile strength of your KiteHook.

Compaction of the sand: the more the sand you put back in the hole is compacted and the better your KiteHook will be safe, all methods are good from trampling to jumping over to the Breton dance.
