Maybe the wow is a better option than the NV because it’s a wave kite that drifts much better. I know that the solo is great for foiling, but I’m not sure if i will like a just one strut kite and I already had a quiver of NVs and WOWs and I loved them. I think that the cabo is similar to the wow. My biggest issue is that I’m not sure what’s the best size for me and I’m trying to get some opinions before buying a kite for foiling.
Thanks for the help man

Does it make sense to buy extensions first to see what extra power you can get out of your existing kites or should you aim for foil specific kites?
I have a Naish slash 5 and 7 that work reasonably well and a 9m pivot I seem to struggle with more on foil.
I use 22 m lines and have 2m extensions, but I read a lot about 28-32 m lines.
Having tried a Gong Unik 6,8 on a surfboard the experience of the kite’s light upward pull made me think this type of kite might make progression more easy.
And would a 7m on 30m lines get close to the power of a 9m on 22m lines?
Hope you experts can enlighten me on this one!
If you begin foiling use a kite nearly as large as you would take for TT. I was only successful learning with a 21 Soul in 5/6 knots to 9 knots (18 Soul that I don't have would have done the same job), 15 Pansh A15 in 7/8 knots, 12 Soul from 10 knots.Crissssssss wrote: ↑Wed Aug 28, 2019 10:29 pmHey guys, how’s it going? What’s your most used kite for foiling? I’m located in Florida so in the summer the wind is pretty light. I was looking to add a 15m NV to my quiver or get a foil, in that case what’s the biggest kite you use when foiling? I just want to use it for the days that the wind is too light for the twintip. I’m looking at the NV or the WOW. Thanks.
