That is good. The first high wind how to control your kite actually filmed in high winds.

All i would add to this is that if it is so windy that you have to body drag in. Then punch to safety before you get to the beach in waist-high water. That will give you a safety buffer to be dragged for a bit if the safety pull turns to shit.
