Hi, the pictures were taken of the first protos of the wing, then the bridle was improved to the format it is now, which doesnt start at the middle of the kite unlike the early images.

Thank you Iain :)

Is the 2013 C4 even better for kiteloops and big jumps?
Or is it about the same as the 2012?
Because in the video they only say it's better for wakestyle/freestyle.

Hi I have only ridden the 9 and 12 in ok winds and they are super solid in the air, everything feels very very tight and powerful, the jumps are big and the kite turns so well. I am looking forward to a session fully lit!

Every season i hope that Ozone will not make changes in what seems to be the best line of kites out there, and every season they manage to surprise me again with how good the new ones are.

Keep the good work Ozone, Thumbs up !

I have tried the 8m.great kite really a freestyler but hooked in kiteloops even super over powered are for sissies or learners.the kite turns over 45 degrees from the sea producing only upward drag and almost no horizontal.too easy like the RPM :(

Have you flown it on 20m lines?
Because in the beginning I had the same problem with the C4 (on 25m lines),
but later I bought a 5m too with a bar with 20m lines + 5m extensions.
When I use these 20m lines on the 8m, the kite is (almost) in front of me when I loop.
And I started with kiteloops in the beginning of the season ( 7-8 months ago ),
so there is still improvement in my loops :D.

I m very experienced and I can tell from the first loop what kind of loops you can get from a kite.this kite loops for show off only not for adrenaline explosion!!

So, try it with the 12m instead and report back, did it yank you just a little bit? ;)
