boost 3 adaptive airfoil relaunch,,, has this worked for anyone,, ever?

yes, i know this subforum is foil kites,, but flysurfers seem very popular in this sub group and i figure some folks on here must have a boost or 2,

i tried relaunching my 13m with the adaptive airfoil kit,,,,i put kite in water on purpose,,, was in chest deep water for the first few tries,, then no traction... the kite would go up maybe 2 ft and then just drop back. been flying flysurfer foils for long time,,, they will reverse launch pretty well,,,,not sure what the problem is with these boosts,,, the only reason i want to do it is i have been foiling with them,,, i like them for that but obviously, i am using the kites at the bottom of their wind range due to the foil,,,,,so relaunch is a problem with an lei,,,i guess i thought that adaptive airfoil would work like my old speeds .
