Most people have the impression that foil kites are good for nothing and that only the inflatable ones should be preferred. This statement holds no truth because there are a number of successful kite surfers who believe foil kites are better than inflatable ones.
An obvious advantage of a foil kite for beginners is that it is inexpensive and easy to assemble and use. In contrast, installation of inflatable kites is also complicated and it is, therefore, not recommended for beginners. The number of lines between the two kite types also differs. Foil ones gives you the flexibility of choosing two, three or four lines whereas inflatable ones only comes with four.
Other equipment germane to inflatable kites also add up to its cost because it requires the use of a harness. Secondly, what gives foil kites superiority over the inflatable ones is their open cell design. This design allows the air to escape in the event of air crashing and greatly reduces pressure surges which prevent injury.
In short, foil kites are an ideal choice for beginners as they abound comfort and cost effectiveness. We wish you Happy Surfing!
