ITW Levitation delta kite. With 8mm Skyshark 8p carbon spreader spar. Why do deltas weave I wonder?

Nice and bold with the kite perfectly placed among the clouds; a charming picture.

Why do deltas weave? Take a look at delta wing aeroplanes and note that they have extra wing parts, so to speak, and the design with the purest delta wing, was the not very successful Gloster Javelin!
