doesn't it? Is this a good thing in all conditions? I've always
thought that one of the advantages of the Flexi was that you could
relax and have a rest from time to time. And wouldn't it be a bit
disconcerting to be lifted vertically off the ground? My 2 sq metre
Quadrifoil is like this, and that can feel pretty scary in high winds.

I can imagine a Peel would be better for buggy racing, but can you use
them for jumping? I wouldn't expect a slower kite to be as suitable
for the normal downwind jumps, though thinking about it it would
probably be better for side jumps and getting dragged about.
