Sweet! That looks like a spot where you could have a ton of fun - and I bet you did
Anyhow, yeah, a nice thing about cross-off wind is how you can have the kite hanging slightly behind the wave or right over the wave - but you don't want it hanging too
far behind the wave or you end up having to edge to much against the kite when you ride the wave (and worst case you actually get pulled over the shoulder). So, a high-aspect kite that sits further forward in the wind window can be great in that case. And you do end up catching a lot more waves, because of how quickly you can get back to the starting point again.
