My goal was achieved 6 kites for the price of my used 12m soul.
The 4m genesis 20 to 35 knots is brilliant fun and also wasn't that heavy in 40 knots plus twintip 0 issues .My learning has now accelerated massively with so many occasions that I'm the only person on the beach that's perfectly powered.
The 12m ultralight a15 I can confirm reverse launches with a couple of pumps 7to10 knots 👍.
Overall I've been surprised by the 12m genesis from 7 knots then picking up to gusting 22 still full power on the trim learning to tack onto toeside in that session 😍.
I agree with the throw away view if they get damaged or abit of sail tape with 0 cares 😂.
I absolutely love the a15 but on price point the genesis wins 👍.

Sold Soul 15 and bought Peak 4 8m, 5m and 4m. They suit me more for foiling, and I dont ride TT more than once or twice a year. It was a great kite in any case.

For a first foil kite which would be better the genesis or a15?

No way you can boost 30ft in 10kts with peaks.. 15 soul no prob.. but as you said... your style..
