Hi Dwight,

what happend to the Rhino2 8.0?
Are they going to produce it or not?
If not, what is a girl riding in 6 Bft?
Not really professional IMO.
The 8.0 is an important kite for stronger winds.
Businesswise not smart (yes, we are talking about North!)

Hope they start to produce one asap, since the windy seasons are comming (in Europe)

Cheers
Toby

Ken wrote me this weekend. This is what he said about the 8m.

"Rode an 8 in 25 knots a couple days ago. Big, big jumps. Surprisingly,
didn't have much trouble landing softly. It's better for soft landings than
the Rhino 7.5 and depowers better than the Toro 8."

It sounds to me like they are thinking about doing a 8m.

I just spoke to my local, who informs me that they arent coming out here (australia) until december.

I am rather dissapointed, as this means I will have to go an X2, or go half of summer without a new large kite.

Im sure purchasing one from overseas would end badly should I need a warranty.

Not real good business practice I reckon (if they are available earlier).

Laters,

Pete.

Thats a bummer... glad I am not waiting for them to arrive! At least the run up to december is usually pretty windy so if your looking at a big kite - 18-20m you may be able to survive hapily till then...

North offers a worldwide guarantee, so it will no problem if you buy abroad.
And maybe it is cheaper anyway....

On the other side the X2 is a great kite as well and soon we should know if the Rhino2 is the same or even better.

Does Naish provide such a worlwide guarantee? Meaning that wherever you buy Naish gear, you can get it replaced elsewhere just through any local dealer.
