I have a Gong Strutless V2 17m that I can foil with in 4-5 knots. (For sale, btw.) Enough power to get going. The main potential challenge during those sessions is not dropping the kite, especially if the wind has long lulls. Anyway, the 17m can give you many more sessions than your 12m, depending on your local winds.dkazhdan wrote: ↑Thu May 28, 2020 5:00 pmI have a 12m Gong strutless that gets me riding in 9 knots using 30m lines. Once it parks I normally have no problem unless the wind drops. But in 8 knots I can hardly drag myself up on the board and staying upwind is next to impossible. Seeing 12 - 15m foil kites flying comfortably in the same conditions.
