My riding style is pretty basic, forward, back rolls, loops, transitions, boosts, freeride hooked in stuff mainly. The problem is that I'm finding myself constantly looking at new gear, love new kit as we all do, but can it be justified? If I sold my current kites I would probably get around £500. If I purchased new North Evos / Rebels for instance it would set me back £3000+. So the question is, is it really worth it? Would I feel that much of a difference in performance when compared with a freeride kite of 2009? I know the answer is probably to demo, but wondered whether anyone has any views before I go that route. Thanks
having flown the new rebels, I would say you would know the difference.
Light wind kiting hasn't changed for me as I have always had Flysurfers for light wind, its only now that some other brands are starting to catch up.
You would be surprised how much more refined kites are now.
But like Toby said, try before you buy.
Where in the country are you?
