Any feedback riding a UFO in the ocean surf while on a surfboard , any feedback on the upwind capability on a surfboard.
I am certain on a foil it is awesome and upwind is never a problem when foiling., however I am looking for feedback that it is just not a foil specific kite.

Same question for snowkiting.
I’m thinking the drag forces applied from a surfboard will cause the UFO to slightly taco, lose shape, and result in compromised performance.
However - snow kiting is more like foiling with less drag.
