Im not sure about the 12M as I've got the 7M & 9M and both turn super fast, great upwind and lots of flying power
Hows the wind in Jamaica? You need to be riding a 12M?
Wind is kind of seasonal , best wind is november-may on the north and south coasts , and then the north is on and off for the hurricane season , the low pressure systems passing across the caribbean during the summer tend to suck up all the wind ...
but i owned a 10m switchblade , but in the offseason ur better off on a 12m ... i'm 185lbs , so the smaller kites suck for me unless it's blowing 20+
but when the wind is up in Jamaica , the kiting is amazing , and it's a very small niche , usually the only person kiting , and i've kited in over 15 different locations in jamaica
