My best improvement is really understanding the kite. Kite with her and not flying her. Going with the wind and allowing it to help do the trick.
I think this is some of the best advice ever!
Not only does it work better, it also looks a WHOLE lot better.
You have to fly alot to come to this opinion. It's hardest thing for a new flyer to get.
"Understanding the kite" is the key phrase
When Winds are silky smooth you can have a better control of the kite and is easier to predict and control your next move (understanding the kite).
I sometimes take that another approach. Specially when winds are uneven. Instead of the kite following my moves I follow the kites moves.
For examples: I have my kite in a turtle position and I want to do a Lazy Susan by pulling the right hand. now the unsteady wind decided to tilt my turtle slightly to the left so now I'm forced to pull my left hand to perform a LS to the opposite direction. (Understanding the kite ).
It's kite having a conversation with the kite. it goes both ways. some times you have the control, sometimes the kite controls you
