Is the idea to prevent having to learn how to gybe or tack so that you can be a kook just bringing your kite over the top at 12 oclock every time you want to change direction like someone on their first twin-tip lesson?
I want to hear someone who is a really good kiteboarder tell me why this is the right way to go hydrofoiling, because as far as I can tell, this design hydrofoil is analogous to this design of airplane:

He tried for a long time to be able to mast the thing (and he is a good kiter) and eventually broke it....without ever mastering it. He now rides a Moses.
