      Folks,

      After having flown and "kitesomething" with a number of kites in the
      last few years here is what I believe are the practical lowest wind
      limits for different types of kites:
      - Inflatable: 5-6 knots
      - Arc: 5 knots
      - Closed-cell foils: 4-5 knots
      - Opened-cell foils: 3 knots
      - C-Quad: 3 knots
      - Bean: 3 knots

      For now, I don't think anybody can practically "kiteanything" in
      sub-3-knots wind.

      Hung.
