Hi guys
I am looking for a low wind kite, to be used in marginal 10knots, stuff like 7/8 - 12 knots of thermal wind on a lake.
I am 70kg, and would use the kite with a normal twintip or a 5'10 surf.
I am thinking to:
- North Dyno 13 Or 17
- airush zero
- cloud 13 or 17 (altough resale price in italy could be close to zero)
- core riot 15 or 17
Any suggestions? I don't want to miss any more days just because my evo 12 is not enough for just a few knots....
Thanks a lot!

Hey so figure out what you want to do with it. If TT and surf, then no need for a race kite..racekites are awesome and powerful, but turns slow.
I believe in the light weight big kites for turning speed.
I would look at Naish Fly (only two struts). The big clouds seems to have smiling people on them.
The Airush I don't know enough about, but that one is also a no strut right?

Have a look at www.switchkites.com the Nitro V2 14m could be your kite to go !
Price and quality will beat any other kite, it boosts, it will get you going in your lightest conditions, starts good in light condtions and has light to moderate barrpressure
price for a 14m 753€ bar 190€ in 3 days delivered at your doorstep!
you might also look at the Element 13 677€ + bar 190€which turns a bit faster, but needs just a little more wind in the absolute low end..but is a bit better in waves!
Good luck with your choise

If it was for Raceboard, the Dyno or the Edge. When its a TT/surfboard, the FLY is the thing. It sits deeper, and just makes the best pull for low wind/low speed TT riding, imho.
