      Hi Dave

      Re -launching takes only slightly longer sometimes, but you probably won't
      crash as much because the kites are more manoeuvrable, otherwise they
      relaunch the same as "Classics".
      They perform virtually the same as Naish AR3.5, but it is not fair to
      compare them to Naish AR5's.
      As far as upwind ability goes, the kite has a little to do with this but it
      is more the ability of the rider. I have seen Wipika/Naish riders go upwind
      as good as or better than any others. It will take most beginners a few
      months of practice to work out how to go upwind, the main component is being
      quite powered up, and understanding that the invisible wind window moves
      with you and rotates as you head upwind, this is why a lot of beginners can
      get up and planing but then fly the kite out of the window and it crashes.
      Hope this helps cya and
      Goodwinds
