I think the Rapture sounds like a great kite, everyone who has tried,
But I want a light fast kite that lets me ride a powered 13m in 16m conditions, for that it sounds like the Hellfish is going to be the ticket.
Agreed, Im in the same shoes.
I described the safety feature earlier like when the kite is in static flying also has better penatration to the wind,
that means less drag with lesser pull additionally without using a bigger kite with inertia and extra weight.
Of course this is a faster high performance kite with easy boostings in a wider sweet spot so it's like a race car,
things are happening faster so you have to be more carefull IMO.
There are too many advantages while riding to concern about that.
So in this case I think it's better to keep the kite low when near the shore!
