Run a kite school do you? I know someone who runs the biggest kite school in these parts and using expensive neos is not an economic choice.

- the kite generate zero lift, by far the safest kite to teach on
- the kite is amazingly well behaved in the sky
- the kite pulls hard but then depowers well allowing the use of a 5m kite in sub 20 knots
- the kite flies extremely well in low winds making it safer because you can teach in lower winds
Since you are teaching you can simply relaunch the kite for the student. You'll also find the student will crash the Peak 4 less than an LEI kite.
After the Peak 4 I would highly recommend a 1 strut kite for teaching because they have a very good characteristic for beginners: they still fly well when way over sheeted.
90% of beginners are over sheeting their kite all the time and the 1 strut kites fly better over sheeted than anything else on the market.
