Hi there everyone. mi name is Xavier and my friends call me Mente (like Mind), im a barely new kiter, i spend the last season learning on a Airush Flow 14mts, this C Kite gave me a very small window for using it (most of the season we have winds on a 10-25knts range). Im about 75kg (150 lbs) and most of the time i found myself over powered and having to stay on the beach waiting for less wind.

Now im looking for a second kite, i preferr a bow kite, in the 9 -12mts range i have done some research, and i wanted to have some feedback to make a good desicion.
* First I have a Best Waroo 08 11mts. Some of my friends have this kite and has very good opinions about it, besides, its a good deal i think
* North Rhino 08 10mts. I just liked. And fits my price range :)

I have a Cabrinha Prodigy board (im very happy with it), so I would like to hear your sugestions and comments

Thanks and hope to see some of you around here.

Bye! Mente

hello Mente,

considering the little you told about you, i will suggest a board change, with a smaller board you can be ride in stronger winds, about the new kite...umm North and Best both are really good making gear, you will have to try it first and then pick the one it fit and feel better to you. simple as that.

saludos

Hi, well i forgot to mention that I'm 6'5" so I have a 44" board, which its long enough for me. I also like to watch movies and i listen to music. :) ... I have like four months since I began kitesurfing, now i can ride well enough, so i want to take the next step, improve my moves, ride upwind, etc.

I wish i could try every kite i like, but sometimes its not that simple, so thats why im asking for your advice, here in Cancun most of the kiters i've seen use best kites or Airush (maybe because the local kite shops sell mostly these brands), but i've heard many good things about the north, so, with this info, which one is best for me.

Thanks again

Xavier

Mente,

there are many good brands in the sport, i sell Best gear now and i can't complain about them, they are good and reliable, years ago i used to ride with north, again they make good gear too, so you have to brands that are good and you can't decide.

i will suggest to look into your pocket and see how much you want to spend or can you spend, then go for the year of the kite. every new year the kites improve a bit more in many aspects, so decide for the newer and the cheepest if you are short of money.

good luck!!
