It would be interesting, which kites are used where.

For example in Germany the main kites you see on the spots are:

Naish ARX
Wipika Airblast
North Rhino
Flysurfer MastAir

95% 4-line kites (not including schools)

But what about the USA?
California, Florida, Hawaii?

France, Italy, Brazil, etc

Are there geographical differences?

Thank you for more info!

There are a few of us in Mexico City, but these are the kites we have. I have a waterfoil, my brother an arc and mastair. My friends have mosquitoes, wipika free air, naish arx, quadrifoil kitesurfer. I know guys with wipikas, some with cabrinha.
Most people go for inflatables, because that is what they see in the magazines and on tv. I prefer foils for the light winds at my local lake.

Saludos y buenos vientos,
Andres from Mexico

North East USA, including Carolinas:
2001: Wipika and Naish for inflatables, fewer slingshots, north and cabrinas (but seeing more around lately).
Foils :mainly f-ones,less flexifoils, mosquitos and ARC's, lately some Mast Airs have started to fly around too
