Thanks for the explanation. Makes sense to have a few boards & a few kites to cover different conditions. The boards are probably easier to alter than the kites. Maybe somebody should consider designing modular boards? Like leaves in the dining-room table. Hey I'll call the guys on Shark Tank.
All kidding aside, there is such a thing as a highly modular board...any of the foil boards that can be turned into displacement boards with the addition or removal of fins!
If you had a surf-style board (like a Space Pickle) that could be either a foil board OR a strapless surfboard plus a nice twin-tip that's good in high wind, something like an OR Mako, you'd be able to go out in most conditions with just 1 or 2 kites.
Foil board + 10m inflatable = 8-22 knots
Space Pickle (foil board without the foil, add surf fins) + 10m inflatable = 14-25 knots
Ocean Rodeo Mako + 10m inflatable = 17-30 knots
**depending on body weight, line length, skill, etc.**
If you added a very large foil kite to that quiver, you could kite pretty much every day. If you then added a 7m inflatable, you have a 3 kite, 2.5 board quiver that would allow you to kite 95% of the windy days at your local.
