How long does it take to setup the HL or Soul from walking on the beach to riding? I'm moving to florida and may want something for superlight conditions...
Depends on spot and wind condition for sure, but if you have no spot, but just shallow water:
it is 90 sec, to get it up. If you have a spot, maybe down to 60 sec + grabing your board...
if you have no spot, not even shallow water:

About 5 minutes.
to pack down again without spot:
about 7 minutes.
on a spot, if you do it well, which is an important requirement for fast unpacking:

about 5 minutes.
Somewhere here I have writen another long explanation about packing... try to find it.
Most important secret is not to wind up slowly and precise but especially to wind most of the bridle lines till the tipps, than you can never have any relevant tangles when unpacking.
But kites as HL or Soul will be a good choice and even easier than the freerace kites you see in the videos. Just take your time to learn it well right from the start.
