hello.
I still only use 12m2 due to wind conditions.

this kite only have ordinary hang time, ordinary jump height, ordinary speed , ordinary turning ability. this PURE-wave kite are not superiour than any other kites in these aspects.

BUT
this PURE-wave kite have very good human scale reactivity, really good. and efficient torque, not too much, but not short. good stability and good staying for edged load and pop.
and instinctive reactivity for smooth riding.

yeah, this is sales talk, but you would feel same as my experience when you use this kite.

The Pure is not so different from the Bandit2 after few tests. Takoon aficionados are surprised by the feelig but my friends from North Evo, Bandit2 and Wainman like the new Pure.
I think this is the new kind of shape every brands are going trought.
Really nice finish by the way with single inflation.

Pure kite to make nice down the line surf!

hello, some of my friends gave me some report about PURE.
they ride 12m2 and 9m2 with good wave.

the kite turns slightly slow for on-shore wave riding, back line tend to sluck, kite would not tend to fall, but turnability come slow.
and perfect for wave riding with cross-on, side, cross-off shore wind.
the kite generate good pull for wave riding.
rider would forget kite existing in the sky. the kite flows automatically and pull gently, not short, but not too much, follow rider's curving on the wave automatically.

they report with worthly special mention, about this really GOOD pull, not short, but not too much.
some friends said that they can make jibe or tack VERY easly.
the kite tend to pull rider little bit upword, and this effect make rider would not sink into water, and make jibe or tack really easy.
they said "theis kite make REALLY easy to ride wave and really fun".

I can ride wave up to my tall, but they ride wave maybe double condition, they really love this kite except on-shore condition.

I rode the 7, 9 and 12.
My experiences are similar as higa. Perfect for side - side off condition. Maybe a little slow for onshore wind when you need to move really fast the kite.
Unhooked riding is super easy, tricks becomes much easier (no more bar error).

You have to trim good the kite, personnaly I put the stopper 10cm low on the depower because it doesn't need so much depower (really efficient).
The rear lines on the 7 needs to be longer (the shop gave me an update).
