Look closely at the yellow flag in the video. It is hardly flapping at all. Anybody who has an instinct for the wind knows the wind is very light in that video.

I agree that the foil vs LEI debate is quite ridiculous (but fun). In any case I thought of this thread when I saw this photo on foilzone.

From some light wind cruising in Holland recently.

Could this be the future?

No but it could be a photo shoped picture.

The future is bright the future is newly designed inflateable kites

Not this foil crap :!: :!: :!: :!: :lol:

i know it's just "foil crap" but a guy claims to have gone 66 mph on skiis with a piece of "foil crap" called the Flysurfer Speed. That's supposed to be some kind of record even though it may be a "crappy" one. Over 100 km/hr with kite.

Yeah I know foils are sick for snow kiteing and land boarding (easy land relaunch). But when it gets to water, deff go inflatable :idea: :!: :!:
