Race board design is getting pretty efficient, but I agree you have an advantage with your foil's more "aligned" approach to opposing lateral and vertical kite forces, thereby reducing heeling moment and even a theoretical limit on kite size. With well sorted foil alignment and stabilization...extraordinary performance potential.
I still believe commercial success will be challenging though, and more attainable if your design allows two or more riders. Quite a thrill for a non-kiteboarder or even non-sailor to have a ride.
