In a way it's an experts only kite... however a quite a few people in New Zealand actually learn on them due to their price and their crisp flying in light winds.
They are hard to fly at first... totally different to inflatables and even foils for that matter. As they are 4 line only kites it may be strange to hear me say that they go well with wakes...... but some aspects of the kite suit wake style riding.
The response is nice and fast, and U can use the brakes to make the kite sit back in the window and hence generate more constant power.
They are not suitable for what I call "fullon wakeboarding" (ie handle passes, bindings... in other words swapping the boat for a kite). However they suit small twintips due to their performance features... hope that clears things up.....
Anyone who has struggles with a big slow kite on a small boards will knoe what I'm talking about.
As for avoiding the beach I kite at because I'd be a hazard... yeah I've had a few accidents....... but they've all been when I've used inflatables
Don't learn on a C Quad.... it may seem tempting at first due to the price but then you'll have to get used to an inflatable once you get better (inflatables far better once wind picks up). I use them only for lightwind fun.
