Really depends on how far down the surfing rabbit hole you want to venture.
Just cruising around with abit of wave riding then you find a kite geared to more jumping aka say a rebel or fuse.
If you want to bit more surf than that, then you move into the more all rounder category, Catalyst, wainmen, lithuim, trigger etc
If you want more C chucked in there, then maybe a naish park or best TS...
but..if you truly want to surf with enough drift and steering when depowered, if you really want to slot into some pits and get closer to real surfing then you will need something like a Airush wave or now the new north Dice. these two for example still give you enough to jump with a degree of ease, float etc
Or you could get a fair dinkum wave kite like the new BWS (totally differnt to the older models), Reo, RRD..etc, but these will not be as easy to jump.
Really decide on what you mean to 'wave ride'. Personally right now the wave and the dice are where I am sitting re wave kites. Keeping the edge just to boost and smooth speed freeride and general cruising.
New reo will be coming out soon so need to try that though
