and why stop the Airstyle trend? It's very progressive without high risk of injuries!

Kiting is a fetish...don't be shaming anyone that doesn't fetish your way.
Personally I know (at this moment) foiling and winging is not for me and yes, I will probably make a joke or two about it, but doesn't mean I think he/she should stop.

Get out there and do what you love to do.
Experiment with different boards, styles and then decide what you prefer and leave others to make their choice.

Toby's ambitions and pursuit in kiting are totally different to mine, but the man gets it done and living his dream so someone please design that man a big hangtime kite with all his specifications and trinkets and let him work. (have you ever thought about reaching out to Dimitri directly?)
I won't fly that kite but I still enjoy the show when in town.
