I'm really anxious to hear how it does in the snow. I would think it'll be the
perfect snow kite the way it relaunches. Except maybe when it falls leading
edge towards you, as if laying on the beach. It might be hard to turn around.
For you guys having tuning problems... remember, when the kite is tuned to
not backfly when directly overhead, it can still do it when its down low in
the window in light wind. This is because the angle of attack increases a lot
the further the kite is in the window. Just always be ready to sheet the bar
way out if this happens and the kite will shoot forward. This only happens
when you stall the kite deep in the window, like when you drop in on a wave.
As long as you keep the kite moving you won't have a problem.
