go BRM style, no leash/integral leash, no stopper, no trim cleat, no dangling lines at all, no problem!
You can use a tiny kite foiling, so don't complain about needing a trim cleat etc.
Really not needed for freeride.
Yes, you are right, I like that too
I use a short leash though, the same as for waveriding/boards.
Good when windy and 3.5 m2 kite, where I find it nice to have the safety option as it is a biiiit of wind now.
But otherwise, the short leash is ONLY used to avoid the risk of accidentally releasing the kite, or the loop popping out - so I have it in suicide most often, because of that.
A few times without the leash yes, when it was on another harness, nice and free
