Hi,have a 2009 Ozone xc light,forgot I had it bought it for teaching,hardly used in mint condition,could be ok?

Also a 6m catalyst 2016 (I think ) also like new.Maybe I should try these before buying anymore kites...
I was using a 2014 6m Catalyst for foiling for about 18 months. The canopy ripped a month ago and I replaced it with the Reo. The Cat was a great kite for foiling. Definitely try it out.

I do have a 12, 9,7qm Hyperlink and honestly heard that the 9qm need roughly one knot more to go and there will ne be no need for 12qm anymore.

With long lines that's possible to foil, but for tacks etc. I really prefer to use my 12qm until 13/14 knots.
FRom then the 9 qm until 17/18 knots.

I do freeride with wings from 600-700 cm surface area.

I'm 84kg hope that helps.

Just realized my 6m Cat is also a 2014 (not a 2016) :D

Why would you do that? Foils become massively huge fun in the 20-35 knot range with a small kite. Waves are great fun.

The only thing that would get me on a surfboard is good sized, good quality ocean surf. Pounding around in wind chop on a surfboard sucks compared to the glide and performance of a foil.

I am a total beginner (to foiling) and I think 25 kts is 'run before you can walk territory' and also I like surfboard riding and we have good wave spots.Many local foilers ,who are a really good standard also learn/practice moves on surfboards first (eg roll tacks) before attempting them on foils.

Why would you do that?
Foiling yesterday in waves on the Hyperlink 9. It started at 12-13 knots and then went up to 16g20. There was plenty of room to take more power with the HL, but I prefer to downsize as soon as I can rather than waiting until I need to. Under most circumstances I would have gone with the smaller kite and continued on the hydrofoil. It was near sunset, so instead I kept the kite in the air and pulled out the surfboard. Amazing session! After a year of almost exclusively strapless hydrofoil, I was quite amazed how much my surfboard riding progressed.

I would get the 9 hyperlink. Get the tube kite you want to ride in the surf and it will be fine to ride it on the foil.

As stated more lift from a 12 is nice to practice tacks and jibes but is not needed unless you want to spend a lot of time in very light winds. I have a bigger kite but fly it very little.

The smallish one struts I have flown are very nice for waves and good winds on a surfboard, but I did not get to try the Alpha yet. Less weight, better drift. The 3 strut wave kites are also popular on the foils in medium winds. I don't think you could go wrong.
