If you don't get answer from your shop and Liquid Force you may try to ask benoittremblay from conceptair.com who is the designer of the kite to give you a line plan or to sell you the broken lines directly.

Sergio, do you know if the LF Elite will work well for your swimming launches?

Hi br44,
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 :D . 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: :wink:
viewtopic.php?f=197&t=2396325&p=983781#p983781

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.

Is there a difference between 2018 and 2016 Elite foils? Any reviews of the kite after long term use?

Anyone have bridle check sheet for Elite 15 ?
Hey did you ever find any measurements? I've got a 12m and would like to check mine to.
