That makes perfect sense iriejohn.
I've also seen lots of folks steering their kite into the ground, kind of a controlled crash, and then after the kite is down grabbing one of the back lines to pull/pivot the kite so that it's facing directly into the wind. Obviously a reasonably clean, hazard-free surface is needed, a grassy area or nice sandy beach for instance.

You can fly almost any kite on any bar with 4 equal length lines. Just make sure that the "Y" is in the right location.
