I'm really interested in the Hydrofoil that Liquid force is coming out with soon (info here: http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=196&t=2384727
). They're attaching it to the really cheap Kite Fish which is good because it will keep cost down, but looking through old reviews, sounds like the board is heavy and generally not very good. In the hydrofoil thread they said they will sell the foil with or without the board.
So I'm wondering if newer versions got any lighter and/or better in the waves? I'm not sure if they even still make a kite version with straps though because I can't find it on the website.
I already have a Slingshot Space Pickle wakesurfer version that I love. From the reviews I've read, it seems like I would never choose to ride the LF Fish over the SP, so maybe I'm better off drilling some holes and getting some stick on straps for the space pickle? Probably add a layer of glass around the foil area too for reinforcement. Seems kinda silly to have and carry around two separate boards all the time if I could have one that does both.
