I kite inland lakes in the winter on my iceboard and some of the nicest conditions are when the wind blows between 5 knots and 30 knots the sun is shining and the ice perfect, but most of the time right around 10 knots, so an inflatable is a problem.
Find a 8 or 10M PL Venum-1 or 2 ; the 10 flies easy in 4-6 mph, and the top end
for me is over 40mph, (proven).
The TE of each cell is kinda round ; so when a gust hits it, the cell walls
flatten out, making the airfoil twist , to unload the pull , (its automatic).
I'd be glad to lend Ya mine ; but i'm sure Ya wouldn't give it back , (so NO)
because it's still my go-to kite , in gusty wind at Ivanpah, on my buggy
