It will have more power and turn slower. Provided all the lines are trimmed correctly there shouldn’t be a problem

A great option if you are penurious and a big kite is out of the question.
Up to 40m have been used in the past though it is the law of diminishing returns with speed of the kite and drag of the lines working against you.
6m to 10m will be fine just use a big bar and the kite set for fast turning and you will considerably increase the power stroke.
Dangerous?

  What you are doing is no more dangerous than flying normally in stronger winds.

Hmm I seem to remeber a certain 14m Rise on long lines. Kite looked like 10m, flew like an 18m and pulled like mountain goat on steroids

Professor Sunrise - Contradiction in terms but it could stick. Depends if he likes it or not

Showing off. Never stops, but he has had his comeuppance. A certain sand bar at Vansurf 1 brings back happy memories.
