The Kiteboarder Magazine

“Really good drift, pretty fast turning, no uncomfortable pull, was gentle but still had power. This is a great kite for strapless riding, less pull than other wave kites, great drift for turns on a surfboard.” // Kristin Vincenzo

“Super stable in the air, felt quick for its size, and stayed in the air even with slack in the lines. Always knew where the kite was in the sky – could even be a great kite for a beginner.” // Chris Myles

“Steady drift, clean power delivery, playful, lively even in the larger sizes. Stronger bar pressure but smooth power delivery, responsive turning and a consistent pull through turns. Fun nimble and easy to fly.” // Joe Chehock
