I agree, that should not be a concern since the kite sitting flatter in winds on the ground,boardriding maui wrote:As for the durability question, there are a couple ways to consider this. When sitting on the beach, struts hold the canopy up in the wind, where this kite sits much flatter. When in flight, struts create an uneven trailing edge, often fluttering between wingtip and S1.
This kite is considerably less prone to flutter at the TE as there's even tension from wingtip to wingtip.
