There is no safety issues, as this very kite has a depower 5th line so you can kill the kite fully
Anyways, in the windrange you might use such a kite (sub 10 knots if average weight), depower does not matter IMO.
But IF you get surprised, just let the kite depower a bit, or fully, to the 5th flag out line
Althoug - many who has not been through the stages from the start, go wrong and think a huge kite can fly in absolutely no wind almost
The smaller the kite, the less wind it will be able to fly, and it will be much easier to keep it in the air.
So the huge kites can be a hassle to get "up and around", compared to smaller kites.
When up, and out on a board - THEN the big ones has more pull (pull increases with projected size approximately).
So you wont get yanked if you try to ride with this kite, but it can be more difficult if not used to these sizes, just in general, and keeping it in the air (much easier with a smaller kite)
You have to remember it is a C shaped kite too, so not the same power as an SLE kite, straight out, but it might be able to generate good power when you fly the kite up and down, as a C kite is better in turns, and the AMP has a good cambered profile and high AR, so excellent regarding apparent wind.
If curious - just go ride it and let us hear your experiences
Nothing to be scared about
(besides a bit of pumping ha haa)
