Your kite area (14m2) to board area ratio was much better than during your initial post using a 8m2 !!
You will also do well with the 12m2 Rebel but any smaller kite does not balance that well with Nugget
With my Nugget 2013 i use almost exclusively my Core Riot XR3 LW 19m2 starting with 7kn wind
I have used my Nugget with my Rebel 12m2 once and it worked good also starting with 12kn wind
SupaEZ, I think 99% of nugget riders will disagree with your statement that the board doesn't balance well with small kites. In my case your statement is true, I had 4 session with the board , 3 with kite 14 or bigger and only one with the kite 8 that disappointed me. I prefer to believe that was my lack of skills and not the board the problem.
I would rather use a small fast kite and nugget in waves over a big kite and smaller sb,in light winds,TONY
