Postby ryansurf1 » Thu Jul 22, 2004 3:53 am you have more fun then me? depends on how you like to ride. Are you a mid or high aspect guy. Do you like to ride fast? Riding waves or jumping? how much do you weigh on that board?

I prefer the nemesis and ride in choppy ocean. maybe in hte 8 size might do the yarga, but don't have a need for that small kite often.

Yarga is pretty nice for chop because you can slow down a bit, where as the Nemi likes to ride real fast to get the most performance out of it. But Ryan is right, it basically comes down to style and preference.

I have the nemesis 8, 10 and 12 and been riding a 16. I would rather go for 16+12+10. But that's me. I ride a 125x38 board and am 83kg. It is really a matter of personal taste: for example, i find the yarga 13,5 too grunty for my me.
Good luck!

Expect stable controllable power anywhere in the wind window with easy re-launch. This medium AR kite has the sheet ability to position and depower so effective that you can adapt your speed perfectly to the breaking wave.
