I guess I'm wondering what to do until then.... (hence my thought to buy a massive kite - a 17m ozone Zephyr).
But it sounds like even if 15 knots, it still wont be windy enough to boost huge...?

I can do many tricks in 15 knots.
17 sounds good, but I don't know how good it jumps and hangs.
20-25 will be flying if you can handle the power.
Smaller board needed!

Was out in that today... good time to practice rotations and silly things without fear of being punished. Much.

Hey Toby, I know you liked the orginal North Dyno for your tricks. Could you please rate the following kites for jumping heights and hang-time. All 2013 models.......... New Dyno, Rebel, Ozone Edge. I'm thinking for starters 11m as I'm only 68k and mainly it's windy here in Calif. Thanks
