Speaking of what type of anchor should be used. (picture of the kite, not in Hawaii) Back in 97', Peter brought his newest creation at the time to Hawaii, Megabyte. This thing is huge, took 12 a whlie to zip all the panels together. We used a Peterbuilt dumper, parked side ways to the kite.
I forgot how he attached the line to the kite, but it held, and good. When the wind picked up to what Peter though was still safe to fly, it gragged the truck, side ways, about 5ft. We freaked!
Peter finally pulled the rip cord to deflate the kite in case of emergencies, just like this. That was an experience I'll never forget.
