Would love to have one of these in the quiver just for jumping session. And a set of Parks to replace my Helixes. And some smaller Clouds for waveriding. :roll:


Sounds like a perfect quiver to me :-) I'm thinking the 12 would be killer for those nuking windy days with small wave to just go boosting.

Hells yeah!!!!!!!

Very nice. The tacks are dialed in I see..I still can't get my feet straoight across into the opposite strap.....that spot looks perfect for raceboard. I cannot even imagine how fast you could be going when it is that flat.

The 12 Draft is fast becoming a favorite. So easy to use....and I still have not used that kite with a raceboard. It actually does waveride surprisingly well...unless you try to turn the kite on the wave..but for down the line...it works well.

This thread has got me v keen to get on the 12 or 14m this weekend - 17m is on order and decided against the 9m, as already have a load of v crispy helix's!

Also the Aguera SL60 turned up yesterday - will be interesting see how it goes with the draft !

...and I have yet to REALLY crank the bar when it is nuking, I kept on floating towards the reef too fast as it were.... I haven't ridden a surfboard with straps in such a long time I have got to get another session in before going all out...but right now the waves are too nice.

so I've had some race sessions on the Draft now. Much easier to ride than the Charger. I'm loving the kite. A lot. The 14 is very light for such a big kite. I think they made good choice with 3 struts on that size. It still has great range.

Better get used to going out early on these babies.

Nice vid - I see you did not use the stopper but previously you mention the heavy bar pressure so is it heavy or have you just gotten use to it?

No it is not heavy. First time I went out I felt it was heavy for about 5 mins..then nothing. I switch between Draft, Park, Ride and Cloud. It is all good.
