One day when this virus problem is done it would be great to have you and some of the other frequent posters and obviously competent kiters here come to Cape Town, as many already do. I know Toby declines, however.
AND, if my shoulder ever recovers, I still hope to visit some of the places I read about here, Caribbean, Brazil, Peru, NZ, Australia, and South Pacific islands, and various places in Europe, and Mauritius, and.....

I use the brake handle all the time to land a foil kite from 12 o'clock, and have for years.
