Excellent Vid. Perfect explanation up until 7:10. If everything after that is true, it could be the end of foil kites.

Nope, totally clueless dude on his light wind view. He does not specify what is *his* light wind. He says using Turbine, well I know my over 100kg can twintip ride on 15m -3gen Speed4 foil kite and 17m Turbines cannot even climb to zenith. So I guess his light wind is 13kn. For me light wind is single digit knots and on 13kn on tt I could dtart going 10m speed4..Hydrofoil much sooner.

The truth is out there and here is for example 8m Peak4 light wind kicking aluula Flite 17m ass badly. There is wind based on Ozone foil kite looping speed although rider seems not to get up from water, Kitech foil kite is also flying. But aluula is not flying or relaunching even from center power zone?
