I'm really curious about hydrofoils and their use for light-wind riding. I've read that a much smaller kite size can be used with them. Can anyone comment on how much smaller of a kite can typically be used?
For example, if I'm using a 15M kite for light winds could I expect to drop down to a 12M or maybe even less? Sure, it will depend on conditions, the kite, rider skill, etc. - but ballpark estimate, what's the advantage gained with a foilboard?
