I would expect Element as a wave kite to be a bit better suited. (Foil freeriding)

From the specs I see that they are the same in low end and depowering but Nitro is more powerfull through the loop (waterstart) and rides faster.

For those that have tried both with a foil, what was your experience? (On what foil? I have a med aspect)

Yes the drift is better especially on foil if u wana go down wind.

Being 3 struts vs 5 struts you save a little on weight, if in lighter winds it helps with launch and relaunch. I find with the nitro u almost have to hot launch in low wind conditions, but once in the air it's ok. I know u are asking about a 7m so this may not apply since 7m winds are usually pretty good.

Both will work for sure, but I second Element for HF freeriding

Element hands down. Works better in lighter wind.
