I did..

megaloops in 35+ knots on a 7m C4.

got lifted in a gust and was whipped so fast downwind at the same time. Just managed to get my kite above me for landing. I was properly bent out of shape midair. Not nice.

Took all the wind out of me, have whiplash.

my god, what a day!

I gave it a go yesterday,20 >33 on my 8meter rpm.I'm 220 lbs and I gave it all I had! Waiting for the highest gusts and looping like a mad man. Rode 4 hrs, no breaks. Not bad for an old man. Only thing that's sore today is my hands for some reason. Love this sport, especially high winds!
