      Advantages:
      - Fast/powerful
      - Easy to pack
      - Easy to launch/relaunch, land
      - Great for light wind
      - Great for jumping
      - No pumping ;-)

      Disadvantages:
      - Limited time for water relaunch
      - Too fast/powerful
      - Limited power control
      - Bridal tangles
      - Got twisted
      - Easy to luff

      There could be more and other may have different opinions...

      Personally I use foil for lightwind (and for kiteskiing), high AR
      inflatable (AR5) for moderate wind and low AR (Wipika classic)
      inflatable for strong wind.
