Awesome, thank you for this. Not seen anything as good and way overdue.

Thank You So Much for this!! I winter here on a remote wide sandy Mexico beach. Almost all my kiting is solo. There's basically never an overpowered event, but I'm new to Souls and the landings have me nervous. There's a ton of great information here. My other kites are Clouds for any day that might get strong.

Good video. Things I would add also are, wrapping the bar to keep it stalled, burying the bar for stalled, burying your harness for flagged or stalled, and maybe just for fun a front line flying landing and a bridle snag landing.
