I have this kite. 12 mph minimum to stay upwind for me on a 6'6" directional at 150 lbs. Under 12, I have this same problem, but who cares since I can't stay upwind anyway. Great kite over 15 mph.

If you haven't already, set it up 4 line and experiment with the best angle of attack. Sheeting in more means more power with this low AR kite, However too much will stall it and stalling is easier to do in light wind.

Great kite over 15 mph

I have the kite set up as 4 line-i guess i'll just have to fly in 15mph+ winds or get a bigger kite!

Thanks.
