Hey CJ, I got my my inverted hover practicing the "gaininng ground in low wind technique". Fly to the top of the window and turn your kite inverted with a lot of brake and start walking forward, things move a little more slowly with the kite and I was able to finally feel it. I still need a lot of practice but I can hover inverted now.

That sounds like a familiar learning curve. Put a little more 'brake' on to carry this forwards.

I like the idea of a competition 'in light winds' to see which flier can get furthest forwards...
