I land far more jumps on the Mako 150 because it is hard to pearl. (dive in the tips).

U can really lean back on it too, like a snowboard, without skipping out of control.

Concaves seem to sometimes "stick" to the water, this could mess u up.

I was thinking of doing that too. Concerned the wood will not bend under vacuum to the 18mm concave. Or it will crack. Have to make the core really thin, or do it in several layers like 3+3mm or 2+2+2mm What kind of wood core would u use? I suppose i could source some veneers, but hard to find in sm...

There is nothing wrong with anyones kites when they have sold 16000 of them and there has not been a storm of protest, but a small PROMILLE have gone wrong.
