I´m riding a Naish AR5 13,5 with a Cabrinha Prankster 175. Thinking of a bigger kite or replacement for bettr windrange. How do Naish compare to Airush ? Should I take the 12,2 or the 16.0 I am 85 kg and wind is a light seabreeze with average 10 kts.
Anybody tested the Airrush in a big size?

Thanks Ikan

with 10 knmts you need something big like 16 sqm. In this size the Rhino 16.0 is still one of the best.
But 10 knts isn't much, you may consider a Flysurfer Mastair 16.
Just heard once again that if the big tube doesn't go, the MastAir still pulls. It is nothing for jumping, but is provides constant pull at 10 knts.

you can use the ab 16.4 (22 m) in 10 knots it can pull u on a big bord ,but its not fun till 12 knots ,then you start getting some nice surf ,
