    If I were to guess why not more it would be distribution challenges from small manufacturers and risk tolerance among the big.
    Surely, there are only so many variables that people can absorb without becoming confused? TT riding - OK. SB riding - OK. Foil riding - OK.

    Foil riding with small wings/medium wings/big wings/low aspect/high aspect/long masts/short masts/medium masts/carbon/composite/alloy ... now throw in canards ... or mono-foils ... or wingfoils?! :o

    It starts to get a bit much for the average kiting enthusiast to keep up with. :-?
