Please note: don't be "overpowered". You want to be "powered", this way you still have control.

People do not know what overpowered is. It is another term thrown around freely. You can not jump if your overpowered because you can not hold an edge. You can't go up wind, you have very little control because every little move you do with the kite becomes a big move. Steer the kite up and your out of the water. Steer it down and your going warp speed getting dragged downwind.

Depends what is meant by "overpowered" if a manufacturer recommends for an 11m kite to be ridden in maximum wind of 25 knots and you go beyond that, then this can be defined as "overpowered" I have ridden my 11m in 35 knots and still was in control of my kite, I was riding an overpowered kite, but I myself was not overpowered.

I think the guy on a video would get more attention and credibility IF he would show (on a video) that he could jump higher than 7-8 meters :-)

what a manufacturer recommends is just so relative. Never forget liability...

Overpowered is out of control, powered is in control.

IMHO think the ordering and lack of context in the video is wrong and dangerous. Especially any new rider might get the wrong impressions.
You run the risk of people starting out with a kite in conditions they cannot handle.
First learn all the technique, only when you get the technique right you start thinking about riding with more power.
