Heard that Neo 12 its slow, sst 12 quite the same. Tried AR wave 12 and i m not impressed at all feels slow and flies slow comparing to my blade trigger 12 that turns in a dime. Should i not go into wave kites category for a 12 mt size?

Definitely try a 12m OR Flite. It is not called a "wave" kite but since it is so light when lines go slack it sorta flattens out and just kind of hangs there.. slowly drifting back till you turn away from it and the lines tighten.. very unique and I like riding waves with it.

Ozone Reo, all day. Best surf kite on the market in my opinion.

I have the 2015 12 NEO is a grunty kite, easy to loop but slow. Also I have the 2016 12 SST wave kites and is slow. In addition I have a 2012 12 REO kite is fast but has the power of a NEO 9 meter kite. I noticed the wider the bar the faster the 12 meter kite turns. cheers . On my wish list is the Ultra and the Cloud 12 meter kite.

So my 11 pivot is my go to kite. Had a ton of power and is the only kite a feel is a can do everything. I do primarily user it in waves.

My point was I have not ridden the 12 but I used to need a 12 and now I'm on the 11. I'm sure the 12 will not be that different :)

Ocean Rodeo Roam seems to be the latest and greatest for wave surfing
