    your jib was obscuring your view more than your spin?

    Well, maybe I should have also said that the main didn't have a window either.... But, when the spin pole is low and the jib tack is on the pole, yes it actually does keep you from seeing what you might normally be able to see through the window and under the foot of the kite or upwind.

    all fair points
    my tack is attached to the furler ring and is fairly high up
