Have to agree with "TheJoe" - that you have to learn to bodydrag better !
As IMO you can not really feel much or any difference when you are okay at bodydragging - you will get to the board pretty fast no matter if a high AR race kite or a low AR delta kite
Remember the major error almost everybody does, when bodydragging:
DONT point upwind or up at the board
If you just think about going "halfwind" instead of thinking "upwind" - you will almost find yourself flying upwind in the water.
In every other situation on the board and in the air, you should turn your head and body and look in the direction you are going or want to go (look over your shoulder for upwind, look around for a rotation in the air etc.)
But NOT when bodydragging
As this will cause your body to "stall" in the water, physically - meaning, you lose all the effect of doing the "superman" posture
It has been said many times before - you can actually go upwind bodydragging in less wind than you need for going upwind on your board
So in really low wind straight onshore, we sometimes bodydrag a bit out, so we (maybe) can get going by riding downwind towards the shore at first, and use the apparent wind if sufficient.
If not (sufficient to go upwind or hold ground) - we just get the ride to shore and thats it - but sometimes better than nothing if you've rigged the gear and not sufficient otherwise.
Apart from that, I just HATE Delta kites and super low AR kites that sits deep - it is simply not my cup of tea (not for waveriding, nor for anything else)
Others love this type - as it drifts well and are stable and turns well and super fast relaunched, so perfect for waves.
And they have grunt, so for beginners and heavy riders some like these.
I hate kites that sits deep and just turns without fast speed across the window...
For me they are boring, and they destroy your options for flying the kite around whereever you want it to go, when riding waves, so just a dull rag instead of a lively tool - and not good at jumping either.
Personal preferences only
Low AR kites can fly relatively fast too though - if a less grunty profile, so the AR is not the only factor, as we often want "not too high" AR kites for waveriding of course - so they can turn on a dime and easy relaunch and good drift.
