What's the reason behind using that shape? Seems like making that notch in the trailing edge is taking area out of the part of the kite that develops most of the power :think:

This zone cut away, does the function of a “loose lech" in windsurfing.
Less drag leewards

Very much range and good behavior in strong and gusty winds
