Normally you see tow middle lines as well However -

On the kite take a line from the front a line from the back (same side) attach to 1 control line


Take the other side front, back and attach to the other control line.

take a line from each control line to the middle attachment.

The intention is that the middle line takes the strain of the kite and the front and back lines give you control. Somewhat like this drawing but this kite has 2 middle lines. from
