Westozzy - When I rode this kite I noticed pretty much exactly what your saying. Fly and follow/power up...Depower just ride... But I also noticed that when I depowered the kite "rocked forward" (as you say) but for me it created the illusion that it was actually moving forward in the window not drifting. But it felt like it was drifting beautifully but visually it moved "forward" when I depowered. Am I crazy or is it an illusion? My 10m is coming in 2 days!!!
