lol, it's actually a fun kite to try new things with. Super powerful, and when the wind comes, which is what I like it jumps well and hangs like no tomorrow.

mocolombo: I've not ridden the 14 helix, unfortunately. Hoping they'll have a demo soon. I've ridden the 12, and love it. Light on the bar, but tons of pull. Doesn't feel like the slow-mo-flat-kite anymore. Tons of power, and jumps like there is no tomorrow. I am curious on how the 14 flies too.

Anyhow.
Let me know if you get to try it.

Great fun!
