I'm interested in kiteboarding and noticed that Rev makes a series of "power kites". I was wondering how these compare to more traditional kites used for kiteboarding, specifically when it comes to things like relaunching in water and jumps.

I have made some tests in water last month with my Powerblast 4-8, thinking of my old kiteboat project. Relaunches are very easy, and encourage me to go on!

But if the power can be OK for kiteboating, you will find it probably not sufficient for kitesurfing / jumping I think.

See the following link, at the bottom of the page, for a picture of my floating kit:
