can travel - therefore shorter the time the kite can accelerate -
before getting to the edge) it therefore limits the amount of extra
force you can generate by moving the kite when jumping or getting on
the board from the water. This phenomenon also makes kiting with
shorter lines somewhat safer.
With a normal kite size for the condition, it would be very hard
getting on the board with 10m line and jumping with 15 m line.
Shorter line is probably more desirable with an oversize kite and some
