Antman,
Try flying without the down bridle and use the outside lower bridle points. Also if you pull in your lower lines you will add more brakes which will help slow the kite down and help even out some of the harder pulls in gusty wind. I've flown the blast many times this way in 20 - 25 mph winds.

That said, keep in mind that the Blast due to its design is a harder pulling kite than any of the other Revs other than the 2-4 and 4-8.

Good luck and enjoy!

For myself, I've actually started flying my Blast in higher winds as follows:

no down bridal (ever)
Inner lower bridal points
Power lines pulled in about 1" at the handles...

To me, it seems to lessen the pull and smooth out the kite without sacrificing much speed

But that's just me...
