Got my second foil today, 2015 Ozone R1, for 550Euros.

Did a double backrolls on first sesh, jumped so smooth and long, happy with a kite...

Go for it. It is well worth.

Not bought a used foil kite for many years now, but regularly look on eBay to see what’s there.
I have seen some poorly presented listings, where image quality and description doesn’t inspire me with confidence.

Well, I can't complain, got Sonic 9m for 350E, end R1 for ~450E (not 550, as above, AU$700 is 445E:), both immaculate condition. Not buying if can't see it...
