anybody's welcome to try it, i know i would be fine on the 16m for my light wind kite, but i love to be litt, and from ive heard this kite should be ridable from 8-9 up to 20+, thats a one kite summer quiver (excluding hurricanes)

right now i have a 21m nemi, the 20m waroo has got to turn way faster that thing

the 14m simply rocks, since having it ive learn unhooked kiteloops, F-16's, backroll kiteloops, toeside backroll kiteloops, frontroll kiteloops and riding blind, and a whole list of tricks i want to start trying

not hype but the kite has definately improved my riding
the real DP out-

Bayflite, you should check out my 20.5 Machine. I have no issues with that kite whatsoever, turns quickly enough and has TONS of power. Of course the smaller kites are quicker but the larger ones harness A LOT of power... I have found that this kite is my cutoff as I also own the inflatable office building (25.5 Machine) but it is only good for downwinders and turns VERY slowly...

I'm contemplating going out... doesn't seem like it'll be enough wind for me on my 13meter.

May just head to the beach and chill for a little after class to see if it decides to pick up or not.

EDIT: Redington or Indian Rocks beach that is.

i have a 21m for sale with bar/lines, you could ride it in 9-10 easy (i can) and with the fifth line you could hold it down to 15 and then jump on your 13

not to mention ive been at work since 4:45 so i think i need to leave
