Either because of costs or impatience, lots of people can't be convinced that then need more than one kite for different wind conditions (think UL, STD, Vented for dual line kites) or to accomodate a learning curve. So they go out buying something too large, fly overpowered and hurt themselves. Or due to cost considerations, they get a kite that is too small and doesn't generate power until you take it out in nukin' winds. Small kite + nukin winds = ballistic speeds that make it more difficult to control where the kite is in the wind window and how much power it is creating.
You mean I won't be catching some sweet, sweet air on my latest purchase?
