This kick starter project looks pretty cool, I put in for one. Totally unique design, I tried to embed the video but it didn't work.

I had a wind meter at one time and found that it was a crutch. After a while your spidey sense kicks in and you get a sense of what size kite you need just by standing on the beach.
