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.
Have been thinking about this recently as I'm pretty sure my 15m Juice is lighter than my 12m Rebel (have yet to weigh either). I think the next big step for innovation in kiting is optimizing the weight (cuben canopies ) of kites and other gear. It happens in every sport, and just has yet to really hit kiting.
