Sorry for my spelling and grammatical errors English isn´t my mother language.
What o these two kites for foiling ,I m an absolute begginer , I got Reo V3 12 meters and Ultra 15 meters and I love it .
Its a good idea a new kite or not ?, if yes one of these or other options .
Thank you very much
It can often be difficult to find some who can compare the "exact" same kites and sizes as one are about to choose between.
When you say "absolute beginner", do you mean beginner in foiling, but experienced in kitesurfing ?
Are you average weight, and ride in a low wind area, or ?
I would think (havent ridden any, only the Ultra in 8 m2) both kites works great for foiling in lower winds, say 8 to 12 max 14 knots.
And I assume you think your Reo V3 is too heavy for hydrofoil ?
If I were you, I would start with your Reo, as you need more wind when learning, so dont go out in less than 10 knots to start with (IF average weight), and here the Reo will work just fine, and good depower which is perfect.
The Reo would be a really good kite for hydrofoiling, only problem is it is too heavy in light winds when a 12 m2 (smaller Reos are great) - but when you learn hydrofoiling you dont ride in such light winds.
Later when you have learned to foil, you can decide which "lighter" kite you want, so you can ride in 8-10 knots with this one
But if you want to sell your Reo, to get an 11 or 12 m2 kite instead, that works for both TT and Hydrofoil, you can IMO (without having ridden those, but by specs and reviews) choose either the Ultra or the Breeze, both are good kites for "everything".
