Just saying. out of 30+ pro riders on snow here in the US one was on a foil kite. That must mean something??
Yes - you're not at the same (land) comps as my friends are
tubes being smoked by FSers, FSers being smoked by ... Elf's
There's a new (light wind) sherrif in town...
I am not talking light wind performance, I am not talking what works best or wins races in light wind.
I am simple saying out of all the contest I went to there was only one pro on a foil kite here in the US, I am not saying who smoked who, or what kite was on the podium. What I am saying is there was one foil kite competing, at the pro level on snow here in the US, The French like a different kite then the Norgs. and the styles very from country to country as I am sure the land based kiting in Japan has it own charm. Companys will always be trying to smoke each other, and often several companies have owned the podium in different disciplines.
As always in this discusion of foil vs tube etc. There is a tool for what you need or want to do.
