Has anyone foiled with the Switch Kites Helium 3? Any thoughts would be appreciated, especially regarding bridle length and if the bridles are short enough that they won’t wrap the kite tips. Thanks!

since no one has answered, i do have an H3, but have never foiled with it. its a 12M, and i quite like it for light wind twin tip riding. good power, drift, range, agility, etc. my impression of the bridle is that i have never really noticed it's length, so i'd say neither short nor long. and never had a wrap, but then again, i don't crash it much.

kite is in HR if you are local and want to see it sometime, pm me.

I have H3's and mostly use them with my surfboard. Don't foil yet. Because they are light, turn well, and drift well I'd think they would be good kites to foil with. I've never had an issue with bridal wrap. Some of their older model kites I had problems with that but not with H3's.
