2011 10m Crossbow. Although I'm starting to look sideways at it for the big air duties...surely the canopy can't survive that abuse much longer?!

BTW I finally had to retire my first pump, that I bought in 2010...well, I gave away the pump itself a few years back but I've been using the hose since I bought it. On the trip home, I noticed a lug on the bayonet had broken :(

Pretty good value, that pump :lol:

2007 9m Waroo. I have newer kites and enjoy this one as much, if not more, than any of them.

2008 8m GK Sonic. Stupid simple design with seven struts, each one pumped/deflated individually (although I installed one-way valves on the struts). The beast is built like a tank with no rips or holes in the canopy or bladders. One of these days it will explode. One of my favorite kites to fly.
