Wow. Are you sure? I can't imagine a pound of dirt in the canopy. I intentionally got my kite wet today hoping to clean off some dirt. It seems that even if your kite never touches the water, if you have a session in high humidity it attracts sand and dirt.

For a big kite 450g of salt, sea debris and gunk is quite believable. Good idea to was in fresh water and let dry in the shadow once in a while
