You know what, you have a 21mt soul, you can ride no problem above 6 knots
...and be overpowered at 10 kts. On my spot all riders with good basic skills are riding at 6kts of wind with 12m foil kites . I ride a 10m Halo on 16m lines with 510 cm2 front race wing starting at 7/8 kts. Basically, if you can park the kite you can also foil .

I ride in light enough wind that the kite won't stay in the air if I loose apparent wind even with a foil kite. Not sure of the exact wind speed it's light tho. Then I have to swim in.
