    • Good flying. Your field looks nearly identical to my usual field, Busse Woods (Ned Brown Forest Preserve) in Schaumburg, Illinois.
    • I look at it this way. If you put it up 300 feet on light line in light wind and suddenly the wind starts blowing hard, it's too late to do anything about it. If your line snaps, say goodbye to your kite. A 100 pounds more strength would probably have saved it.
    • I know this is redundant, but necessary -- more brake. On the dive stop, hit the brakes hard and take a step towards the kite at the same time. This will take the bounce out of it. Try to hold the inverted hover as long as possible. When you start losing it, turn and fly away.
