Need more flight time and practice landings and work in more feel for control. Little boring maybe but I had fun, and seems to entertain the kids on the beach.
Great you had a good time!
And there is much more you can work on with a trainer:
1. Think safety - keep safe distance from objects and bystanders. Practice activating safety (b2 may not have a safety line, unfortunately)
2. Train to fly instinctually by not looking at the kite. This is more safe, once mastered, because it allows you to focus on what is going on around you. Thus you can actually watch for bystanders and other hazards.
3. See if you can use the kite to assist you going from a sitting position to standing. This will help understand power development.
4. Revisit #2 with by now parking the kite in one spot, and walking to another location, while keeping the kite parked in that same location with minimal movement of the kite. Even more advanced than this is locating the kite deep in the window (requires lots of small movements) and walking around.
Keep others safe and stay safe yourself!
