Which Kite for Freestyle/Wakestyle Progression?

Postby ADEN » Thu Jul 31, 2008 7:36 am

CAN ANYONE HELP ME OUT ON WHICH KITE TO BUY.
I WAS THINKING ABOUT GETTING THE 08 NORTH VEGAS BUT WOULD RATHER STAY WITH BOWS etc. DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS OF ANY FREESTYLE DEDICATED BOW KITES OTHER THAN THE SWITCHBLADE 3. OR IS THE VEGAS A GOOD IDEA.

BTW I HAVE NEVER RIDDEN C-KITES AND THOUGHT IT WOULD BE TOO HARD TO CHANGE FROM BOWS, OR IS IT WORTH IT??????????

I love LF Havoc. It is the best hybrid for wakestyle! Try it and you will understand that this that that is necessary for you!

I agree with gotwind. Go fly a C for wakestyle. More pop and most important of all a C offers a much longer "dead" moment after the pop. If you have some skillz it will take you only a few sessions to get used to a good old C.

Vegas 08 is an excellent kite.

Havocs are awesome kites for wake-style in variable or gusty wind (which a lot of places are). In steady winds I agree; it's hard to beat a C-kite...
