10-12m strutless/single strut is the key for ultra light wind. It'll be interesting how an aluula performs though..
thanks for the recommendations everyone. I wonder why all the local guys have landed on apollo's for foiling then? seems a bit odd to me... I guess it looks like a soul, but i'm sure it performs very differently.
anyway, I think I might give a gong strutless a try, even if i had to get a 12 and 10/8m to cover what one flysurfer could do, its still so much lower cost that I think i'm going to head that route for awhile. I still need to get my Fsurf package as well to get onto a real foil rather than my 2015 foil fish
Eventually I would like to end up with a 12/10m flysufer soul, but that might be a later purchase as I start building my quiver to fit where I'm heading with this sport.
I've been following the Aluula page as well. I hope it really works like they're claiming it does, it would be the next leap in kiting technology. Sort of like how everyone says "all the kites after 2015 are great at everything" if you've been kiting since 2005 before standard safety features and what not. in 5 years we'll all be talking about how all the kites hang in the air perfectly and 6-8 knots of wind is plenty to get out there! from all the AWS report outs, it sounds like every kite company is working hard to build lighter weight gear which is awesome to see. Exciting times to be kiteboarder!
