Hmm, i'm sorry i don't believe you're out in 50mph winds :D :P
Looks like about 30-35knots at the most to me!!!!

Nice boosts though!

Quoting the peak wind gust is a bad idea. Some kook might get killed thinking his kite is good for 45 knots steady.

might not be the feedback you are looking for...BUT:
how about using your edge before sending the kite the next time? :thumb:

pretty lame.i just got back from a session on my 14.5 ion two in 16-18knots and was boosting twice this high :jump: . at 45 knots it would be hard for me to jump this low. :argue:
