Still happy I bought it though.
It has kept me on the water many times when everyone else have had to get back to shore. So this idea that big kites got limited use highly depends on where you are kiting.
Havre is spot on.
I can't compare to other kites either, but it's worth having a bigger kite whichever you decide.
My Zephyr was the kite I used the most this year.
I'm 95kg and my range for Zephyr is around 12-20kn which was pretty much all the wind we had when I could kite.
You can fly it in less, but it's a struggle to stay upwind (for me at least).
I see it as 12m with extra grunt
Yes, foiling will give you more low end, but it's a different discipline to twin tip imo.
On a side note, I'm curious how much wind Toby dares to use his kite up to...
