Which model is Kevin Langeree riding in this size?

He does Airstyle, so if this is his choice of the Naish range, it will work just fine

In the king of the air it was pivot... but looking the video I suppose not a 14m :-)
The pivot is given as "freeride/wave"... so it suggest me less airtime? ?? (you are the boss :-) )

I need to replace my rebel 2017 and the rebel 2018 is not good as before...

I don't test, so I really can't comment or suggest.
Try to test if you can!

In terms of pure Airstyle, keep in mind that Kevin is using probably about a 10, maybe an 8 when its nuking. His kite control is absolutely insane. By the time you get to that level, your skill set is so strong that is doesn't matter which brand. The Rebel and the Pivot have completely different feels and it really comes down to preference. For me, I prefer the Rebel because it has a bit more of a "locked in the sky" feeling. However, the Pivot is an excellent kite with great loft and hang time - again though, this is more about the riders skill level than the kite brand. If you are looking for something that is more forgiving and more of a "hangtime" driven kite then Rebel. If however, you appreciate a more nimble kite that is faster turning then the Pivot is a great choice. To me the durability of both kites is solid but I have to say that the Rebel is an absolute TANK. Hope this helps.
