I am thinking of purchasing an Ozone foil for this winter season. Is this going to be a better option than my current 12m Naish boxer? I do not have a 5th line on my kite. I hear there are advantages to using foils, especially Ozone on the snow. Any real world feedback would be apreciated.

It is better in the snow :)

Agree with turtle, spent two winters ago trashing a couple of inflatables on the ice.
Last year got a 8M foil and love it: set up, take down, and the total control the brake lines offer.
I can take a break in 20+MPH winds and just wrap the brake line to the snowboard and be totally unhooked to take a rest and walk around with out being tied to the kite. Heard Brian at GLK is handling a line of foils this year

Although I'm not good at jumping with the foil (or inflatable for that matter) there are a lot of people out there who are. Check out these guys in Antarctica. http://www.kiteflix.com/kiteboard_antarctica_video1.html
I had a link to a video where the guy coming off a mountain doing several mid-air spins a few hundred ft off the ground. Can't locate it now, but if I do I'll post the link.
