There's a lot of difference between 8 and 14 knots of wind.
I can begin to jump and do most fun on my Aero 127 in 14 knots (steady) with a 7.5, but won't be near having fun in less than this.
I'm heavy at 97 kgs. I guess many light weight (below 75 kgs) freestyle sailors can have fun in 12-14 knots.
4 knots is not even formula planing..
Anyway the idea is amazing and I guess Starboard have a solution for having (real) fun in 4 knots within a few years.

Necessary analogue AERO but for freestyle.
Purpose - as possible early jump on flat water.
Volume beside 125 litres.
Width 72 refer to.
Two fins decide problem of the length and area of the fin.
7.5 -8.0 maximum sail.
Windsurfing will have fun in light winds either as kitesurfing !
