Plus i very much doubt any of these packing/unpacking methods would work when it's blowing 35knots+ on the beach like it often does here in Guincho.

My motto: If you can "afford to kite" you can afford complete set ups

The kite will want to keep it's shape in spite of the wind trying to flatten it out kinda thing... ie with the up wind wing tip being pinned down with sand the down wind wing tip will be left to flop around in the wind.
Also .. because of the way the kite is situated relative to the wind won't you need a quite a bit of sand in higher winds, more so than with the traditional weighted wing tip launch technique?
