You said: "But dont use an ARC, you will not have fun."
This, in my opinion, is the most ridiculous statement I've ever heard! LOL
I use ARCs every time it snows and have a blast. The depower is great and without bridles, I'm up and kitesnowboarding faster than the guys on their Flexis, etc. Plus, they handle a lot better and allow me to use shorter lines over land which is nice for control and jumping. I would love to hear your basis for this statement. I have flown many foils and personally love the ARCs. Sure, not all people do, but to say you can't have fun with one? That's ridiculous. Most guys here buy them for land use after they've flown them. In fact, we almost have as many ARC users on the water as inflatables due to their user-friendliness and great performance!
