I don't see the benefit of this board I ride in wind so low I have to work hard at keeping the kite in the air and I use a "traditional" foil board. Once you up on the foil you just need a place to stand. If the wind is so light than you need a huge board to gain enough momentum to get moving it's time for another sport.

I use hybrid 11,5 and 24 m line. Sometimes the wind go down immediately and remaining 4 knot, I swimming for long distances. If I will have a floating board I'm Sure I arrive on the beach, without swimming
