I have a 5m2 ENova2 as my smallest.
It is a kite with extreme depower - and I love that.
I have tried many other 5m2 kites, both other Takoon kites and also other brands - and they have all had the same problem: They PULL too much when they are turned !
Thats the last thing you would ever want a high wind wave kite to do - as this will totally spoil your ride, and you can not ride freely anymore - and sometimes you have to ride downwind instead of perpendicular up the wave, because of this unwanted pull
Generally, I like that the smaller the kite - the more depower they should have, and reverse - the bigger the kite, the more power (camber/foil).
Because of the windspeed downwind, you need way more depower in small kites, than in big ones IMO.
And also because you use the really big ones (10-12m2) for jumping and TT fun also, where you want hangtime - and in all cases you want power with these.
But for the smallest kite, I want it to have almost unlimited depower (no such thing I know - but still, way more than typical).
So instead of having a 3 or 4m2 that will be used very rare - I can use my 5m2 on these EPIC days as waves are usually huge.
And when it is "lighter" wind, the 5 will still be able to be used, as these sizes ALWAYS works in waves is my experience, because they are so agile and generate apparent wind easily, so no problem
I dont know what others experience is regarding their smallest kite and power/depower/turning power ?
Obviously only an issue when riding waves - but here they are used so often, although the 7m2 are the most used size around here
I like high depower small(est) kites
