I have a 12m Solo and a 17m C2.
The Solo will fly in 6 knots, foil in 8.
The C2 will fly in 4.5 knots, foil in 6.
When I read people saying the if their kite will fly they can foil it makes me think their kites don't handle lulls very well.
Agree that if saying so, their kites are heavy and dont handle lulls well.
But you forgot to write that YOU can foil i 8 and 6 knots with these kites.
This will always be an individual thing, as besides rider weight of course, also board and foil wings and type etc, makes a huge difference in how low you can go
You are very right though, that these light kites we use now in foiling, can hang in less wind than we can ride, and assume that was your point
Not sure this thread is about foiling at all, or ? - since in the kitesurfing forum and not the hydrofoil section, and not asking about strutless, so assume it is for other board types, or for both types ?
