My - by far - most essential light wind gear:
Flysurfer Peak4
Slingshot UFO
The rest is up to personal taste :lol:

Or if you want to ride in the very very lightest of winds possible (yes, even lower winds than Flysurfer Peak) you need a large, mid-to-high aspect ratio, ultralight twin-skin foil kite, with long lines (27m+)

Or a mid AR Hybrid (I use Hysper 14m), works from 3 knots. Used Peak4 before, but Hysper is more stable in lulls, does not loose shape as quickly.
