What's the stall speed of that glider, 3-5 mph ? You couldn't see it in that case. Simple way out, just carry more power in a level or climbing turn. I thermal at near zero ground speed, turn around and get in a stall. I just kick some power up for the turn then pull it back off. This not with a glider but a 2 3/4 lb 14oz/sq in plane in heavy thermals.

Editidied the wing loading, it's 14.5oz/sq ft not 10, the 10 was a guess from memory.
