never had a Elite in my hand, but if and as far as I can see drainage is similar constructed by Ben as on his own concept air Wave kites, which I have, then it shouldn't be a problem.
As long as drainage is big enough (diameter of about 2-3 fingers) and bridle allows to depower profile in a wide range then you can make everything flying from the water, even if sewing is not so tight, or even if it is open cell or singleskin, doesn't matter
. There are just view kites as for example kites from 2000 with a fixed c-level bridle or for example the old ozone Chrono with a to small drainage, which have difficulties, but even here nothing that can't be solved with scissors:
It is more a question about what is the minimum of wind needed, above 14 knts with some experience it should never be a problem. Below 10 knts then it could be nice to have a kite with some lotus cloth.
But also here it is most about experience, so first try it a few times in the shallow: viewtopic.php?f=197&t=2394369&start=20
to get experience and only if here everything works perfect, do it in the deep.
