If this is true, Stick with what you have.
Thanks, never knew about ikitesurf. Lots of nice stuff on thereSun wrote: ↑Mon Aug 07, 2017 2:17 pmHonestly there is very little wrong with that Switchbalde, and even the Rally is a great kite for the type of riding you are doing. If you are balking at the price of new gear, there is little you can do except search the classifieds for used gear.
But I get it. Sometimes you fly a kite that just resonates with you. At that point, find an example you are willing to buy and go for it! For what it is worth, I have handled over a dozen kites purchased used from iKitesurf classifieds, and all have been in great shape. As long as the seller can string sentences together coherently, speak about the kite, and accepts PayPal, I have had great deals on very new gear with no problems.

Evo is an amazing kite. Ive tried all the kites you mentioned, and its stand-out! New 2018 should be coming in November and i hear it is amazing. They changed a lot.hookedcook wrote: ↑Mon Aug 07, 2017 1:39 pmBeen kiting a while but it was always off and on. Mostly off because of my job and locations. A couple of years ago I decided enough is enough and bought my own gear. I don't get to kite much but will be able to do it a lot more in the coming months. I have a rally (15) 9 and a switchblade (16) 12. I was in Brazil and rented a (17) north evo 11m and it was awesome. I want to buy a new 10 m. Deciding between a north evo. Or now the (18) rebel has 4 lines??? Or a core xr5 or?????? I don't do unhooked tricks, just a fun kite that works and I can learn to boost a little. Any suggestions are welcome?? Also, always wondered, do you guys pay retail prices???? I was lucky with my last 2 kites through friends getting hooked up. For core and north I got nothing, so for a kite a bar your talking about 2000 bucks! Cheers
