Hi I am wanting to buy a big light wind kite and was thinking either the new 19m fuel, 20m Aero, or North. Any advice is much appreciated.

uuuuuuhmmmmm........
If you want any replies, you need to add the average wind range where you'll ride, and your weight......then board size?
good luck.

For those conditions you shoud try the flysurfer 16.5 Warrior or maybe the new psycho.

It sounds like you haven't even considered foil kites but light wind is the area where they currently excell. In light wind conditions foil handling, luff-resistance and water relaunch are superior to LEI kites.

If possible you should try a couple of kites out before you buy.

Yeah to get the 8-12 I would also say a big foil, and/or bigger/wider board, from 12-14 any decent 16-18 m lei should be ok with the 150

The 20m Aero2 would be the best kite from Naish right now. This according to their dealer seminar which just finished in the US. I was told, they said their newest design is their best kite at the moment. Aero2 is better than x2.

don't forget the Gaastra GXR 19.5 2003.
Heard only good things about it.
Hopefully can test it myself next week.
Also Aero2 20 and Rhino2 20 should be very good.

Cheers
Toby
