Hi gadjolino,

I am using the Primadonna 9 and 7 since a while . I can honestly say that those are the best kites I have ever used for waveriding and freestyle. They are not grunty kites but have an excellent low end if you work them. The 9 is the biggest kite you need on a floaty surfboard. The pull is very smooth and consistent (very important for wave riding). Depower is endless, in fact, I never even bothered to put it on the depower settings. Two other characteristics that set the PD apart from most other kites is its stability (even when you loose tension on all lines during tricks) and the direct response to bar input. Jumping is good as well but this an area where for example the Rhino08 beats the PD2. With the right technique you will reach the same heights but the Rhino holds you up longer. If you are after jumping/speed kite you should try the Wildthing? Build quality of the PD2 is immaculate (better than North for sure!) and the attention to detail is much improved from older JN models. Try one!

I use the 13 and 9 (I ride a tt). I've never tried (or really needed to) the high wind setting - I guess this just depowers the kite further. The PD2 does jump very well, but if you are after extreme hangtime the Wildthing2 is much closer to the likes of the Rhino, whereas the Primadonna is more of a Vegas style kite.
I personally wouldn't go larger than a 13 as the bottom end isn't as strong as some kites. The 15m DaVinci BAT and particularly the 16.5m Wildthing2 make better low wind kites for twintip riders.

I love the Primadonna2 - it's super-smooth and does everything well - it's a true C kite, but the depower is as good as a bow. If I had any criticism it would be that it likes a bit of wind behind it to perform at it best.

There's a UK shop that's going online soon that promises great deals on JN kites and boards.
I'll posts details once it's up and running.
