Cool -- I think I'll get an old beater this year and do that.

Or maybe . . . . . no, I think I'll leave my other Spiro the way it is. Definitely get a beater.

How many mph of wind does to take to get something with that little sail surface to fly? Or does it weigh so little that it needs less wind?

It's a little of both. In your full vent, the mesh adds quite a bit of weight while effectively reducing the sail area. For the purposes of this conversion, removing sail decreases wing area but also reduce weight.  Stripping a sail down this much does raise the minimum wind speed needed to fly well but not as much as it would seem.

I'd "guess" this mod would fly in 10 to 15mph and up as long as the fabric is nice and stiff  AND it doesn't start to flutter too badly. On the bottom end it could probably fly in 5-10mph if fitted with a P90 frame or similar.

I'm afraid that I must agree. The main risk if these sort of images got very common I see, is that female kiters might be deterred and consider that KL is not a place for them (and they tend not to be abundant as it is already). If I could choose between a KL free from non kiting "babe" (just for the sake of it) images and a KL full of it, the decision would be simple. Let's go on with kiting and kiting related posts instead. Sorry if anyone gets offended.

/Happy kiting and posting,
Exult

Ahh OK. Sorry bout that. Now I see the reason and it now makes sense. Thanks for that.

I live by the beach and this is pretty standard dress even in our shopping areas here. I queued behind a young lady dressed in only a bikini in the bank last Monday.
