<Ding Ding!> Highlights why discussions of foil and wave riding preferences are almost impossible to have on a forum like this. Different goals mean almost entirely different gear preferences. For those who understand these tradeoffs, then you can have an intelligent, rational discussion of the pros and cons. But inevitably a bunch of people chime in "yeah but the ____ is the best kite because it drifts perfect for waves and you can boost to the moon and its super good upwind and you can race full speed downwind and it'll make you lunch and do your ironing!". Critical thinking is in sadly short supply.
No doubt Kai is the man, but it still comes down to personal preference. Some of us do like to depower the kite and just try to ride the wave.
Of course, he knows what he's talking about. But it will be relating to his style and what he wants to achieve. That doesnt make other ways wrong.
