What causes a kite to Backstall?
By changing the angle of attack we can change the lift produced by the kite: the bigger is the angle, the stronger is the lift, but just up to a critical limit, where the kite (or any wing) starts to stall. Any further increase of the angle of attack above the critical angle will cause the wing to back stall.
