How does it preform in the waves with sb?
Do you use such a big kite in waves on surfboards ?
Or not average weight maybe
I have tried it a few times, but being average weight it does not work at all, have tried it with "classic" wavekites too (heavier), as well as my one and no-strut, and none of them works at all in the waves, for DTL riding...
A 9 m2 even if you can not go upwind, is a blast and works so much better, compared to any 12 m2, is my experience.
The one and strutless ones turns pretty good because of lower weight, but they flap a lot more when powered, which I dont like either.
You can typically ride with a 6 or 7 m2 on a wavefoil instead of a waveboard on a 12 m2, so always chosen instead - much better
If you just want to use the big 12 m2 light kites from your "hydrofoil" life, for an occasional ride in light winds on a surfboard, then they work just fine, but otherwise not IMO.
