What is it you seek?

And are you average weight?

I havent tried it, but have had the 7.5 and 5.5.

I have a hard time seeing why such a kite would work for your preferences.

But as I dont know these, I can not say :roll:

If you are a beginner, average weight, and 12 knots of wind max, it might work okay.

Hmmm, I would aim for something "more" lightwind than the 11.5 m2.

Your 9 has quite good peak power when dived or loooped on long lines, so you need something more powerful than the 11.5 IMO if you aim is to ride in lower winds.

Unless you have a problem with your current 9 m2 dropping out of the sky, then the 11.5 will hang "forever", compared.

But you can get many kites which can make you go in somewhat lower winds.

I believe that hybrid is best solution, when you have super gusty, stone and short beach. I would like the opinion who used 11,5

Be aware that you cannot self land the hybrid kite incase you are alone on such a kite spot.
I saw some videos of people trying to selfland but it’s very sketchy and in my opinion impossible in case you want tot do it safe and without spaghetti lines. I could not self land my 3.5m.

why you say that, maybe it didn't backstall totally, it wants always relaunching. I would like a quite kite, super stable, relaunch, not heavy. Two years a go I had peak 13 super kite, but relaunch in deep water was very difficult, never successful in two years. The hybrid I think is the best for overall
