Half Price cos you can only half use it (because of your dodgy knee) half the time I suppose.. Can't think of any other reason, in reality you should pay double for the likely liability your wonky riding style might do to the brand image. ;-)

As yet no Core on the beach I use. Your call.

** That's true about jumping, Nexus would probably be better.

Nice kite. But do set your expectations well, assuming you can’t demo one.
Jump well and the 15 likes some wind to be impressive.
Great feature is Hang time.
However it is slow across the wind wind - high aspect and I could easily fold the wing tips in turning, but I’m a bit heavier.
Water relaunch is ok too.

Try and demo it first if you can.

Looking for a light wind kite and quite like the look of the Ozone Edge V8 15m. I am currently riding a 14m Naish Torch from 13/14mph onwards but need something from 10mph+. I am 81kg and ride a Shinn Monk 134/42cm, live in UK.

How good is the 15m for light winds and general boosting in the 15 to 20mph range ? all info appreciated.
