How common are 100 ft.+ uplift loftings anyway? This as opposed to high wind loftings which been way too quite common. Erik's lofting in Oahu happened in 2002, Malek's a few years ago. That is only two in nine years worldwide that I have heard about. You would think there have been others, have there been?
Given the major lack of kiter experience with this sort of thing, I would look at it from a glider perspective as Wayne mentioned. Gliders have been soaring lift bans in uplift zones for a very long time. Erik sunk out in the trailing rotor or mechanical turbulence zone beyond the lift band. I recall Malek did as well, otherwise they both might still be up there if this wind stayed on. I understand Erik suffered some serious injury on impact falling at speed.
How well do you think the multiple reversing kite loop approach would work in the rotor zone as opposed to the lift band? This would be behind or downwind or to the sides from the hill, mountain, building, etc.. The kite would see rapidly changing horizontal windspeed and directions. Could you maintain the apparent wind the kite sees through your kite loop above critical minimums despite summing and lessening of rotored wind input and keep kite control to landing? http://www.atsb.gov.au/
