Went out in 52 knots once. Wasn't fun at all 🙁

Plus 40 knots I reckon isn't worth going out in.

Columbia River Gorge, summer, fun starts at 35
meters said 40-48 g56
against the knot on a 5M thinking “do I need a smaller kite for 2 days a year?”

Nah, it’ll be fine, what could go wrong
If you live, it’s the best day ever
