Core GT 9m or 10.5m provide a lot of grunt for little kites!

10.5m in 12 knots provides enough grunt for decent pop (S-bends, mobes)
9m in 13 knots (great for looping, trucks upwind).

15Knots + and you are lit.

A year ago I would have never believed it. If you get a chance, try one.

I'm 88kg so I'm no feather weight.
PS - Delta C so relaunch is instant.

I ride an Starkites Exa 11m in light wind work well in 12-17 knots and I'm a 135 pound rider so heavier guy might try the 13m. might be worth something to look into. Also the the north is a awesome wake-style kite.

stay away from switchblades. The new 2013s are merely storm kites anymore. very disappointing

Im using an RRD obsession pro (cshape) 10,5 for 12+ knots of wind but im only 50.
A great kite for these conditions is a rrd obsession 12 or 13,5, easy relaunch

The 2015 Best TS is by far the best lightwind wakestyle I have tested. The 15m and 17m are the only large kites with good turning speed and slack.
