I can definitely recommend the Cloud for light wind "surfing" as well!
I have the Cloud C1 in 17 m² (and 10 m²), and the 17 is really working very well with a surfboard, just as Dirk described it.
The Cloud is so light and stable, just a dream. BTW, I´ve been out with it when in parallel two guys with Flys were riding. I had much more fun, obviously
It certainly doesn´t turn super fast, but for it´s size I cannot imagine anything better. And it stays in the sky even when you fully drive towards the kite in lightest winds. Then, after you made your turn and pull in the bar, it just continues to pull you softly upwind again
However, at 16 kts the 17 might become a bit of a handful... But FUN (not just riding) from 10 kts is guaranteed!
