What happens when you're riding the wing on the longer mast, then you come down onto the wing on the shorter mast?

I wonder if anyone has experimented with multiple wings mounted at different heights on a single mast?

It should work just fine.

6 years ago I had this thought of stacked wings, edited on my Zeeko racewing foil, back when we were discussing speed and wanted to use as small and fast wing as possible, once up foiling:

Today noone is going for pure max speed, as control seems to be more of an issue.

it stops quickly. that's the biggest problem. but I got used to it fast. It works well. But I have to try it more to be able to decide if this is realy good for me.👍🏾👍🏾

Hi.
I do not like big foilkites. I do not want a big frontwing. I want my tub13 as the biggest kite. with this solution I can get away in light winds with a fast forward wing.

My problem is my weight of 115 kilos .....

I think it's fun to try things. so we'll see where this leads me.
