gain speed and apparent wind

It was easier on the instructor's equipment to stay upwind and get a solid ride. That board was bigger, though the dealer told me I should be able to ride a 142cm fine.

More speed = more apparent wind, but more apparent wind can have a negative effect on upwind ability as it will move the wind window the opposite way to the direction you are travelling i.e the edge of the wind window moves more down wind therefore reducing upwind ability as teh kite sits more in front of you.
I haven't read all the replays on this thread but the guys telling you to slow down are nuts that's the worst advice

So you are saying that apparent wind plays no part in your ability to get upwind?
