Traction kite flown down from a high (900m) paragliding launch site.

I was wondering when someone would do an intentional high flight with such a kite.

It was a big 14 sq. m. one. (But I think they use projected area, not laid out area, so it is a lot bigger than the equivalent 150 ft sq suggests.)

Interestingly, one of the sponsors of the experienced kite flyer is Ozone, that makes kite surfing kites / traction kites. They also make paragliders.
