Yep UK, Frinton, I grew up near there :thumb:

Interestingly LEIs seem to be weapon of choice these days

You're right. I always though that on land or snow the Rams will be preferred over LEI.
Guess that price is more of a factor or that LEI's just got so better.

Long long ago like 2005 and before this was true the foils really did have a hand up on the safety issues however its no longer the case. At this point in time you choose what kite you fly based on your experiences not because you were told this or heard that or it has a fancy name in front of it.

The snow guys are migrating towards LEI's too. What worked in the past is no longer the same these days. Both LEI's and Foils are equal on all levels. (in theory :lol: ) let the fighting begin :rollgrin:

And for a reference the foils with exception of Flysurfer are actually generally waaaayyyy less cost then LEI's . I'd presume nowadays with the kites prices flying up up and away people want one set of kites for all disciplines as not all foils can be used on the water. :thumb:

Badass Vid you guys i'd say you're at the top of the list in KGB these days. I love it but wouldn't want to do a 30 foot kite loop on land. haha. You know that move where that guy almost went splat on the ground and worked it out a foot above land that was true skillz cause that was some bone shattering speed. :thumb:

Yes if your a young crazy buck and like to kite loop landboarding then lei is the way to go.

I take my hat off to those mad bastards because they are litterally kiting at a victory or death level. But please wear a helmet!... dang.

If your not as mad as these blokes and don't kite loop then a foils is a better choice for land as they will float you down smooth every time. The lei's need a well timed redirect for a good landing.

Mind you when you landboard and kitesurf its pretty decadent to have a foil and a lei quiver. it do... but then i'm fairly addicted.

Totally agree with Plummet! The debate rages on but the truth lies somewhere in the middle, but both Foils and LEI have wonderful characteristics and a choice on any given day between the two is great! But for float, there is nothing like a FS Speed 3 big boy!
