The mini website is now up on naishkites.com, with the others.
Looks a pretty awesome kite all round.
I reckon us Raven lovers will be very happy.

hehe, but it doesn;t have to be either or? The kites are really ideal for different types of riding, so if you like a little bit of both then.... :-)

Fair comment Taut.
Different types of riding for sure, The Ravens just suit what I like.
I'm just a reasonable intermediate rider on the older side.
I get my kicks from just busting large!
What I love about my 06 R's is in any given wind I seem to be going bigger than most guys on the beach, especially in lighter winds.
I can boost respectable height off my R16, when most other riders are struggling to hold ground. :D

I really hope these are as good as they look, if that's the case people like Xray and myself will be heading for orbit!

Word!
I myself am more an oldschool rider as well but do like the occasional new school stuff. Raven's suit this type of riding more than perfect.

I know what you mean!! I am such a nerd when it comes to new toys. Before kiting it was the small gadgets..now it is all kites. I don't even care that I have phone that someone threw after me...all my funds are funnelling into gear!!!

Rode the 12m R3 in light conditions, so nothing on the high jumping. Lighter on the bar, way faster en super smooth, great feedback on the bar, feels like an insane topend only a little bit less low-end. I'm sold.....

More soon!
