The first thing that impressed me was the simplicity of the bar. All controls are below it.
The kite is designed for stability so that you can "park it" and ride the surf. Dano See, the lead designer, has also achieved more power than similar sized kites, and optimised it for unhooked riding.
The kite design characteristics are:
- fast turning with smooth consistent power delivery.
- a great wave kite that also performs in all other disciplines.
- smooth and consistent pull in all phases of the wind window.
- consistency , hooked or unhooked.
Here are some first pictures. Stay tuned for my reports on using it.
