7, 10, 11, 13, 15, 15, 16, 19, fuels and a few envy's = 109

I ride all of them, wind range 10-45 knots. I want to get an ozone chrono or flysurfer 21m, if it's too windy for my 7 I pack it in.

Good, you guys don't make me feel as bad about my addiction at only 89 m^2.

Edge 19
Dyno 18 (either Edge or Dyno for sale soon)
Edge 13
Vegas 12 (for sale)
Rebel 11
Fuse 9
Rebel 7

Now you know you are committed to kiting if you have more square feet of kite, than you do square feet of living space :thumb: Anyone meet that?

Heh...

7, 10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17.5, 19, 21 = 130.5

There's 4 foils in there, and a lot of overlap, but sometimes I just want to ride around and boost. But it needs trimming, eh...

Me too. I never miss a day with a 7 & 10m only this season = 17. My friend is even more of a minimalist, she is sponsored yet only rides with a 5 & 7 = 12. Means you can comfortably replace kites every season and travel easily. There is the possibility though that your building your quiver without the sweetest size kite for your area. I think 3 kites is ideal as wave rider. Interesting question. I guess a lot of it comes down to your weight, varying conditions of your location, and how wide your riding styles are. :thumb:

I did and still do. But it's not the best for airstyle stuff unless really powered and then the bar pressure gets stupid. Bro still has his and a Dyno.

Plus it loosened up some capital to get my son a kite.
