I have ridden smaller foil kites for years.....my 8 psycho 2 was my most used kite for a couple of years - use regularly a pulse 6 and maniac 3 - all have been crashed hard without exploding...so I'd go for it..

That is a fair point. I recently converted to seat harness and find I can ride much more powered as well.

I’m not looking for boosts to the moon, just something solid. At those high winds, I probably care more about hangtime for tacks. Again, I’m used to tiny Clouds with barely any hangtime so tacks (at my ability) are close to impossible.
The bigger the kite the more the hangtime, that's why once you get into foil kites you'll be begging for 12-15 knots so you can ride your 15.
This!....although my 11 is the Fav
