Really just looking for a good way to get this into the air with a smaller (and cheaper) kite.
Those concepts are mutually incompatible. Small + cheaper doesn't = air and safety. The wing suggestion is not a bad idea but not cheap either and I'd suggest a stiff framed wing https://kitewing.com/product-category/wings/ (4.6m or more) over an inflatable if jumping is your goal. The framed wings have been around for 20 years and are more tried and refined.

FLandOBX, these ideas are what I’m looking for here.
I’m just trying to figure how much upward pull this would give at about 25mph... not much I’d expect.

Thanks Bille, you da man.

A big soft wing will probably put you in the air, but then you are hanging there with your hands only...

Safer before lift off but dangerous as soon as you are in the air.

For small jumps probably ok but trying anything more seems like like a no no for me at least.

Zooming around with a rigid wing wing over your head seems like the perfect way get hurt or damaging things.

Bille, that is awesome!
I was referring to riding a motorized landbord holding a rigid wing over your head with your hands..

You need a big floaty kite to jump a landboard with. 12-15m foil kite in 10-18 knots is ideal.

Use the electric landboard for cruising around without a kite then fire up your big floaty foil kite and traditional landboard for jumping.

Another way to get the adrenaline without a kite. Just ride it in India.
You can argue which one is riskier

Not electric, but a landboard and a kite.

Wow that is some mad shit right there. No soft landing into snow if you stuff it up. I have done something similar on a smaller scale in the sand dunes. But I don't want to be at snap your spin in half heights over land if i stuff up. so all my gliding has been sub 8 foot off the ground if planned well.

If you look on YouTube for Paraglider v Speedwing v Miniwing you should be able to find a video which demonstrates the different lift you get from different size wings and the relative flying speed required. It might help you visualise what may be possible. It may be easier to operate the board remote from the relevent forward facing harness. Have you tried anything yet?
