In 6-8kts still learning to hf, I'm using an 18m diablo and it's marginally overpowered once up to speed for my ability but it's easily reined in.

Tested the top end of my 18m foil kite yesterday, not on a foilboard, not on purpose, but amazed with the depower and ability to ride with the kite nearly overhead
