Oh my lord. This is insane! I've had 2 additional thoughts: 1) I want to experience this firsthand at some point in my life. 2) Are there others who would also like to feel the power of Les Suetes? If so, then there may be an "adventure tourism" opportunity here. If this phenomenon is truly rare or unique, then perhaps it can be marketed. I mean, there are folks who chase tornadoes and other types of extreme weather.

Kite surfing or hang gliding during Les Suêtes might not be the best idea. :)

I figure you tether yourself to the ground with a good strong rope or steel cable, put on one of them "squirrel suits," and then open your arms and jump! You'd be a human kite!
