    Aerodynamics drive what happens, just as much as (regular)dynamics do. In order to move out in front of the kite, you need to slow the kite down relative to the ground by sending it hard back across the wind window. Problem is, unless you redirect the kite mid jump the kite eventually looses all its apparent speed, and without apparent speed looses most of its lift. Slowing the kite while its heavily loaded causes it to stall and for you to hit the water. If you've ever sent the kite too far in a jump you know the feeling of dropping like a tea bag.

    You don't really get the chance to harvest that kinetic energy like you describe because slowing your body requires slowing the kite limiting its ability to fly. Ultimately the kite wont support you unless it keeps moving.
