From SB
"Long vid in german language.
They gave a Duotone and a Slingwing to absolute beginners to test and compare.
Verdicts:
- Duotone easier for beginners, softer, easy to pump, easy to vary grip position
- Slingwing more stable in flight
- Duotone light (2,9 kg) and a little "fragile" materials ("like a kid rig")
- Slingwing heavy (3,8 k) but build with solid materials
- No substitute for light wind windsurf/kite foiling, needs at least 15 knots for easy flying
- shi...y to watch but fun to do

I found it really helpful seeing how they get up in this video, here's the YouTube link:
Aloha, I welcome and appreciate all responses of positivity and good feeling.
