Please note: If you haven't used a suitable sized Peak4 kite with a surf foil, try it. The drift, power control and power per sq metre is radically different from other kites of all types. Cheaper than a wingding too.
Thanks, interesting comments. I haven't flown a foil kite since i was learning 5 years ago, a 13m Peter Lynne Gorilla. Pulled like a truck, stink depower. The complex foil bridles do allow for more projected area to actual area ratio then ILE kites and the kites are in stronger wind up higher. So I will accept I'm wrong this time :D

Still, I'm enjoying a level of excersize doing something I love wing foiling that I don't get kite boarding.

when people get bored with wing , they will looking for something new.
The same what happens now switching from kite to wing.
For me wing are bulky & boring, except for wave riding.
