The only negative side effect of HoverGlide being made from depleted uranium is too much inertia.
It hits you much harder than light carbon rigs and tends to chase you longer after a fall.. it can literally go on its own for a second or 2..
be sure to wear a helmet
Is that reaction (the following/ danger etc) different than any other /most other foils? Do most fall away instantly or?
A foil with large-sized board will go down propelled by waves very fast. It's a convenience if you wipe out and it comes to you, but you will also end up chasing it once it goes downwind of you.
A pocketboard will stick to where it is better and would drift slower but you won't be learning on a pocketboard.
And last, and extreme case is a large volume wing that keeps the foil floating sideways and not only it doesn't drift, I saw reports of board sailing upwind on its own.
Since you're asking all these questions, I have few for you:
- what is your proficiency in kitesurfing (twintip/directional)?
- what is your weight?
- what are waves/wind conditions of your spot?
- what is your budget for foil setup?
