Hi,
what do you think is my best option for wave kite between theese:

SS RPM 9m 2013
Airush VarialX 9m 2013
Cab CHAOS 9m 2013
Blade Prime 9m 2013
Blade Mist 9m 2014
Best TS 9m 2014


I mainly do wakestyle, but I'd also like a kite that works fine in waves, so theese are my options and I'm not sure which to pick. I have only theese options, so I have to choose from them...

Any experience with the Chaos in waves?

many thanks for any input

got a Prime 11m, not sure if 2012 or 2013 - it´s the one with a old man drawing

a little too fast/responsive imo

kite feeling is sub-par againts C kites (at least againts my C kite)

not into waves myself but people around here that are and ride blades do not use the prime, they go for the trigger

on the ID what i heard is that is a bitch to relaunch

got a Ion IV 13m and relaunch always requeired some swiming. the 7m is a bit better

could be an issue if you´re ridding boot

Relaunch on the ID is good. There is a small trick that works. If you are pulling one line and it doesnt come up completely, let go that line and pull the opposite steering line, the kite will relaunch nearer the middle of the wind window but all good :)

Airush 9m Wave - don't let the name put you off. I mainly ride freestyle and boosting and chose it for this... it just happens to be a very good wave kite also.

thanks so far.

I'll check Id, but I think I won't get such a good deal on it. And I ride boots.

Airush Wave not avaiable for me, but there is a quite new Varial X for a killer price in my neighbour beach.

I'll test the Prime today and hopefully the mist tomorrow

Check out the LF Envy if you haven't already, I've been flying them for a couple years now and they're the only non-ckite i've flown that gives good slack. And of course it's super lightweight so it drifts great in the surf.

envy is a nice allaround kite fore wake and wave since it sits deep in ww and hss good drift, but it pulls like a train and it doest slack at all.
I have 2013 primes and they are non compromise one thing only kite and that is perfect wake free style preformance. Not good fore wave.
