I snowkited with foils for three years. The best glides I had were with my flysurfer speed 2 15m because it is a very wide aspect kite. The manta from ozone also had a lot of hangtime. A high aspect will give you the best upwind performances and a lot of hangtime. That is why I bought ozone edge tube kites even if I ride mostly on land. They turn faster than foils, hangtime if nice, upwind is just incredible and sooo stable compared to foils. Give it a try. My speed 2 15m is on ebay if you are interested in foils...
