In general, but not always, the kite should turn quickly and you should have a close radii flight giving maximum depower, stability in the sky and an easy start in the water.
Ben Wilson is one of the most famous wave ktiers of the world. He was a co-developer of the Slingshot Wavekites and in the meanwhile had his own kite company Benwilsonsurf.
