So i'm Not surprised he would somehow be mixed in with a
group , building a world-class kite like the Edge .

The 19M Edge goes a few knots lower than the Zephyr, but its more technical to fly, more rewarding when you do handle it well (basically don't oversheet it). Points upwind even higher than the Zephyr. Edge 19M top end is lower than the Zephyr and its definitely not gust absorbing either.
Zephyr is actually pretty easy to relaunch, 19M Edge is more challenging.

There you go Toby there is a few boost in that video.

For me those are still small.... the kites are capable of more under the condition we ride in.

Boosting does not necessarily equate to airstyle, it's only one factor.
