make sure your health insurance will cover you. The pictured combo looks like an accident waiting to happen. I would go with the buggy and stick with the foils your used too. Your sessions will be measured in hours instead of minutes with a buggy.

I use a flexi 02 buggy, 1.5, and 2.1 lil devils, and a 2.5 Razor. The control of the razor is awesome. It depowers with minimal input then will fully power instantly. I have retired several kites infavor of the ozones.
