I had a 14m Wild Thing (which I just sold on ebay). Its about as good as a conventional kite can be. Very fast. Very fast turning. Good range. Good upwind. Great jumping. Huuuge pop for wakestyle moves. Outstanding safety systems. I never crashed it in 12 hours on the water so I can't say how it relaunches.
I sold it cause I want to buy a flat kite and I have plenty of other kites that cover the same wind range as the JN and are not as sellable.
