I must say that, from what I saw, I was quite impressed with the new Yargas. The wind was really shit - horribly gusty, and very low lulls. The same people were riding the same 12 or 13m yargas in a range of wind between 12 and 25 knots. (Of course, sining and looping like crazy in the low end to get power, but still). I started with the 16, then the wind rose, I rigged the 12, did some more, then was overpowered on the 12 again... all this time, these guys were riding the same kite and did not seem to mind the gusts which made it really difficult for me to keep the edge.
My conclusion was that the range and the gust handling on the new yargas must really be very good. So for those who are looking for these features but do not want to go with the bows, I would definitely suggest test riding the yarga pro.
I saw them too in Alcaidesa ( where I live ) and in Palmones.... great kites, nice looking colors and the wind was shit
I saw also a bunch of riders walking back cause they end up down wind like any other kiter
I saw they were flying the kites on 4 line modus and on crashes the kites wouldÃ‚Â´nt relaunch so easy
I saw a bunch of riders swimming back to shore cause the kite was soaked with the LE twisted in half
And I saw the Yargas performing as good as any other 06 kite out there
OH...by the way .....one of them got my Octane 12 for a ride and he love it too
