Seen the guys from North doing tests at OBX. The new Vegas still looks pretty much the same. But with graphics that might have been stolen from Gaastra 2001 sailingsails.

I cant understand how a brand that makes such a briljant looking bar makes that ugly kites.




Well if its not Mr. Negative in the Flesh! :desperado: :desperado: :desperado: :desperado:

I saw the proto yesterday in Tarifa to, and it looks excactly like the 2013 vegas and not the Neo!
much higher aspect than Neo, long wingtips... When the kite was kiting i really though it was a simple vegas 13 with no graphics, but when he came back on the beach i saw that it was just 3 struts and with a mini bridle :o
On the spot they were vegas, neo, evo... and by far it was closer to vegas shape!!!

Yeah, it is a new kite and it is called DICE. It's said to be a mix of neo and vegas - with 3 struts and a simple bridle. It's said to have a similar feel to vegas, good drift etc.

Seems north wants to have something RPMish in their kite line.

Any word on the Evo? Could this new kite replace the Evo as well? It sounds like it's a high aspect Neo. I'm very curious! ;-)

Well, I have not seen any news on evo ... I am mainly interested in Vegas. I dont like bridles, non direct kites etc. And well... I am just a good internet spotter... I have no 'spy' friends in north :(
