I have never had the Yarga hindenburg on me. I have the 13.5, 11, and 9. I am happy with all three. I traded them for X2's and X3's. I am much happier with the handling of the Yargas.

I rode my Yarga 11M in 25 - 30 mph wind with 35 - 40 mph gusts. The kite handled great and the jumps were high and floaty. No complaints whatsoever.

What´s the best for light wind (9-13kts for a 75kg rider)? yarga or a nemsis? (similar size, of course)

I'd go with the Nemi in the big sizes (16 or 18 ) as I think it has all the advantages of high AR (good upwind, light on the bar, fast through the window) and has enough load on the lines that wakestyle jumps are a breeze. The big Nemi's will have less grunt than their mid aspect counterparts, so they will take a little more finess to get the most out of them. Just ride them fast and you will be very happy.

If you want nifty features like one pump, or fancy colored panels, go elsewhere. If you want to fly kites that fly sweet and to save enough money to go to some place warm and windy next winter, look no further. :thumb:
