the metal hook should no be facing towards you but towards the water
the GT are quite powerfull..so you might consider the 10,5 if you were happy with an average 12kite (or even a 14 C kite)
I import Core to venezuela and the GT is an autosell, i just have to give people the kite to fly..
I fly the 7 mostly and i replaced my carved Fireball C kites for everything but steady 7m widn with kickers (istill use my fireball and an old pulleybar then)
(I can also sell them to the US
