love them on the smaller sizes
the down-side is that they feel heavy in the bigger sizes, my opinion.

but if your not into foils for the water then maybe look for a kite without pullies.
I also think how you solo launch and land makes a huge difference. I went from drag launch to teathered launch and my kites are looking crispy alot longer. no more do i have that leading edge sliding on the sand.
