Usually at that point i come off the foil and the kite floats downwind and recovers while airborne.
The peak has very little inertia and no structure. I suspect it is not possible, so all this talk about generating "negative" apparent wind seems moot.
Then again, I could be wrong. I do know enough to know that i do not know everything.
Yes, no difference and easy with the 5 m2.
But why do you say zero line tension?
In a 360 you got loaded lines all the way through
Kite is flown up and around in a loop while you and the board make the donut.
But if you do something else, so you got zero line tension, the Peaks will drift better than tubes.
Only thing is, the sheeting is sensitive so one has to learn this and takes a while.
