Comments:
My wife (50Kg) and I have been running with Flysurfer Boosts since launch in 2015 and have many hours on the range. The 18m is an exceptional low wind kite. My wife is kiting in 7kts on a twin tip and easily hammering upwind. I'm riding from 9kts and I am convinced that it's the most powerful low end tube kite around. Even very close to a Flysurfer Speed4 21m!!

Kite flying characteristics are super easy with full control throughout the wind range, and when it's powered up the boost and hang time is awesome.

Final really important point is the light wind relaunch. In sub 10kts getting a big tube kite to the edge of the wind window to relaunch is a real pain especially if the board is lost. With the Boost 18m that's no problem because of the special small trailing edge bridle it back launches like a foil kite. No need to get it to the edge of the window. Just pull the steering lines, it flies off the water backwards, let go one line and that's it, back in action and ready to ride! We tried it down to 7kts and it works a treat.
