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!

i've not tried the WW, they look solid enough and guys rave about them, so maybe there is now a choice for all people.

something safe with built in relaunch.

and something ballsout for those who want that.

One of the Best reseller here in Portugal has it on order. When it arrives i will also test it but it seems it will take a while.

See you!
