Looks like early days - based on the harness line experiment. It might work better if there was an offset to the leading edge.

Looks like the Bandit 13 :lol: :lol:

big foil wing, biiiiig volume board and small "kite"
I prefer the other way round. At this stage of development I cannot see anything that would make me going for it.
Definitely nothing for traveling at first sight

Small wingspan = small surface areas = low investment (TPU, spi, dacron).
IMHO, for DiYers, a reasonable level of difficulty before starting the construction of a kitesurf wing.
