Bob, not sure what size Yak GT Eli was flying 7m or 9m. Either way more than double the size of my 3m, so I was pleased with that bit of flying.
Cheezy, it is the Chilean folk band Inti Illimani.

big kites and harnessed in make all the difference on the upwind leg. The ability to make a sweet upwind turn doesnt hurt either.
