Just new to the sport but fully hook! After a great season of kiting in the North East and then 3 weeks in Brazil from Cumbuco to Jeri and back I am thinking of changing my kit after seeing the variety on the market. But what to get? I really cant decide. Travelling and kiting in Brazil opened my eyes to an industry full of innovation and diversity. There is so much to chose from but not the chance to try it all and when your buying 3 new kites you need to get it right! Cos it aint cheap, especially with todays climate. Thank god we arent having a recession with the wind tho! I need a kite that will ride waves, gusty North East conditions and then travel to Brazil for 3 weeks a year and ride lagoons be unhooked and do downwinders so what do I buy? Your feedback and comments would be most appreciated

Buy a Helix2-Rev2-SB4, will fit your level for a few years.. All kites that works nice allround, and still powerfull and fun.

Thanks...so I have actually heard and read a bit about the wainman. Saw a few on the water in Brazil. Do you use Wainman? If so what are the advantages of this kite?

Last year North kite overstocks are sold for crazy bargains. Too hard to pass on those deals. I passed on the deals since 5 lines is not an option for me. I am guessing many people feel the same, since other companies do not have those massive amounts of overstocks from last year. Maybe someone at north will finally "get it".

great deals on royal solos here in the uk.
nice smooth kite that soaks up the gusts and behaves when unhooked.
