Would using a "surf kite" like a OR Roam work with a fast foil like a moses 558 for example? I guess you wouldnt go as fast or point as high upwind as with a higher aspect kite?
It will work just fine
These wings are what we rode the first years of hydrofoiling, with our "surf style" wavekites, some wings more fat/low AR, others really fast and sleek - no issues.
The question is more like: If you have chosen this wing, is it because you want to go fast? To jump? Or to race?
If one of the first two, no issues with a surf kite.
If the latter, you wont like it.
Meaning, most who choose such a faster and smaller wing, like to use foil kites, often fast ones.
And reverse, those going for big wings, usually go for an agile kite could be a LEI very likely.
Apart from light winds, where foil kites excel on both wings of course
