It's really cool to try other kites and I know you have to give it time to get used to the feel etc of anything new you try but nothing I tried came close to what I want from a kite.
Today we were out on the ocean side and did a big downwinder in pretty big surf...I love the 5m Renegade!
Thanks everyone for the amazing tips.
Jono, i really love my Rebel, the thing is, before the rebels i flew 4 line kites and never been in the situation the rebel put me after droping and tangling.
If it weren't for that I would stay with my rebel. I know the tangle is my fault, but well, since I can't change myself i can change my kite.
To be perfecttly honest I was really looking forward to trying this kite, I was on the Prototype Screamer 10m and then swapped kites on the water for a 12m GTS and then straight back onto the 10m Screamer after this.
It was immediately noticeable the lack of feedback at the bar, it felt pretty vague but the real surprise was the lack of power, the Screamer 10m felt way more power than the 12m Core!?
Do you get a free gladiator outfit and a miniature toy sword with the Spartan board?
