15 mph
Fully vented, 4 wrap frame, SLE
First time on 30' lines, 90#
Like a puppet on a string
Yet another unique flying experience.
Every combination creates it own opportunities

Had a border collie chase the kite for 30 minutes last night.
Was scared to set it down as he leapt off the sand everytime it came close.
The owner seemed to appreciate me exercising his dog while he watched the sunset

Finally he came over for what I thought would be a confrontation

"Could you fly the kite over the water?
"The water slows him down enough so I can catch him and I need to get home.

Have not had any complaints yet, our beach can fill up with walkers around sunset.
I tend just to set the kite down when I see a group approaching.
Then launch as they pass by.
Or stand at the waters edge and fly out to sea, wind permitting.

Think I will try 30' lines

Certainly, grumpy people is the absolute antithesis of the mental state I am looking for
