Foil kites and LEIs have their own advantages and disadvantages.

There is a partnership between ELF and North, so that North can put their logo on Elf kites.

Flysurfer make a great product. But their development time is waaaaaay to long. They have dropped the 8 ball and let others into their usually exclusive market segment.

On a side note. FS will still benefit as it will now be cool to fly a foil.

Flysurfer Speeds are not meant to be race kites, but easy all-round kites, with huge wind ranges, Riding the speed 4 18m in 16/18knts or the 12 in 25knts is pure pleasure; that would be another story with a chrono. You lose some speed and upwind ability, but that's the price to pay for more fun and comfort.

FS and chrono/elf higher ratios cannot compare. We may see an higher ratio FS in a year or two, since we spotted some prototypes in Europe, then we'll have something to compare.

Is Skywalk the parent co. of Flysurfer ?
If so then they got a PG that could have an easy MOD to turn it into a race kite ; it's
the , (Poison-3) and it has 69 cells with an AR of nearly 7. The small one is 22 M.

All it would need, is the ability to Float ; maybe also make it with a lighter material
and reduce the bridals cause it's Way too strong for a water kite.
