I think the tube LE might be gone and 3 line kites will be in vogue. Plus we will have configurable kite sizes and kites that adjust better to how you want to ride that day ie freestyle vs surf. Also canopies will get lighter and tougher. Just wonder if the sport will die like windsurfing has
Windsurfing has not died here...
There are still some going 100% for windsurfing.
AND, most of the former windsurfers has converted to kitesurfing now, so the number of "active" surfers are not going down at all
So a change for the majority of windsurfers into kitesurfing, and still some windsurfing - so here nothing has "died", just converted to kitesurfing as it has more advantages in our area
