Yes true, strutless are the exception, i had a storm voyager that flied in much less wind than it could waterstart, but doesnt compare to a foil kite in ultralight material.Regis-de-giens wrote: ↑Mon Aug 20, 2018 9:26 amI would not be general on this point : some light strutless (gong, Cloud) hang in the air at least as good as relatively heavy foilkites like FS S3 or sonic fr or Ozone R1v1. And it is even reinforced if the rider is not used to foilkites like you say.

Have the same problem as you... tired of the kite falling out the sky in marginal conditions when going backwards in sea... 1 meter wave, slack lines and the kite drops...neilhapgood wrote: ↑Mon Aug 20, 2018 7:55 amHi folks,
Sorry another foil kite vs lei question here.
I have a one strut 12m lei but my sticking point when really light is getting in the water as there is normally breaking swell up to about chest deep so when walking out I invariably get swept back a metre or so at some point and often this causes the kite to drop. Would a foil kite stay in the air better in this scenario?
