I've been flying over the last 2 years with Wipika kites (2002 : AB10.0, 2003 AMP 5.5, 8.7 & 11.9). Due to some "struggles" with warranty and product-support, I have a very negative personal feeling towards he brand. Hence I'll be flying another brand this year. I'm only seriously thinking of 3 brands : Naish, North and SS. The kites obviously would be V4/Boxer, Fuel/GTO and R4.
I'm looking for a 3 or 4-kite quiver. My boards are a D'Light Mutant and a Radical TT. I weigh in about 75 kg and been actively kite-surfingfor 2 yrs, 3th season coming up. Regular conditions around here (Belgium) are Side-Shore/Side-On-Shore and wave-breakers 400 mtr apart. Seldomly get good waves but rather choppy and unstable conditions.
The idea is to get going around 10 knts and keep it going (safely) up to 35-something knots. A few guys at my break have either SS or naish kites, but I basicaly wanted to throw the in front of a way larger-public then just 3 local guys
We've got no-one around here with much or any credible North experience so make yourselves heard and try to convinve me.

on a different note :
It's just great to read all these posts...
I've only just (due to extra responsibilities in my job) starting to read up on motivational and leadership techniques and it all comes down to playing a "head-game".
Now if any student psychology would come down here and start reading all these posts, he would pas his final examn hands down. One can give A-class examples of empathy, sympathy Horn and Halo-effect
Just great and enormous fun.
(Which is why we all keep coming back here, isn't it ?)
