Like any open cell. I assume it works great if you keep it in the air. :D

that's pretty obvious... but dropping in the shorebreak ends in a disaster anyway no matter what you use.
I was more wondering if the Leopard is a kite for wave-kiting with enough turning speed etc. Here the PL Arcs work fine and my Flysurfers too slow...
Maybe there is a difference in flying flying speed as on snow / land the speed might be higher.
Anyway I will find out (when it is a little bit warmer)

you could use it on water but as previously stated, youll need to keep it in the air, but as for using it to ride waves. id say that would be a no no!! you need a kite that will drift when theres no line tension and that's not the leopard.
