Wind has been blowing. Should keep on blowing. I've got a new kite and I'm starting to get my timing down on it and it is awesome. It's a 2010 Cabrinha Crossbow 10M. It's got me gust hunting to boost big. Today had gusts over 25 but I hardly felt them since every time one came, I'd jump. Come to think of it - boosting to avoid gusts was how I got addicted to jumping. It seems like I used to kite overpowered a lot and one of my bailout moves for when I thought I was about to lose my edge along with any kind of control was to jump. Then I could get the kite back over my head, land, set my edge again and keep on kiting.
