I need a kite for 18 knots - 30 knots and I would like to know if the RRD Type 7 9m is good for waves like the waroo 9m. I have a Waroo 13m, which I use in sub 18 knots condition, but I find it's turning slow in the waves, which I don't like.
My F-one Tribal 11m broke, and I need a kite for some freestyle & waves.
RRD Type 7 is a 2006 kite. The 2008 model is called Type 9. The Type 9 is a bridled kite like the Waroo. The Type 9 is significantly more suited for wave riding than the Waroo as it is much faster. The waroo is more of a grunty/low end kite. Probably great at what is does, but its primary strength is not as a wave kite. I know because I just ordered a Type 9 in 9 m2. It's a brilliant kite!!
Dr R. Have you riden the 08 Roos. They are way more stable and don't backstall like the previous models. They even float along when riding waves and I found them quite quick. But the best advice is always to fly both kites because we all have different riding abilites and likes.
