Re: Has anyone here done any kite videos?

kites probably good (brooxes was where I got a load of my info). I will say that oversizing the line is a good idea - you're going to need to include boat speed in there so 15kts gust == 20kts on the kite. Soft kites seem likely easier to slide past backstays, mainsheets and radar arches or whatever else you find downwind.

Have fun!
