the X2 is for very experienced riders.. and honestly it is not all the fuss which has been made around..
you should better try a middle ratio kite like the Aero (if you want to stay at Naish) or the Hydro (by Wipika) or the Toro (by North), those kite are really good and not only for beginers.. you would be amazed to know all the pro who are using those kites for their own fun..
you know the point in kiteboarding is to have fun, not the most professional equipement and honestly I'm sure that your progressions will be a lot better with a mid ratio kite/// try them and you will never ever want something else.. they are so stable, easy to relaunch and dam you can also have big air, very big one, if you understand yer kite
I am getting a really good deal on board and kite, and i am definately going for a high spec kite. I have used the lift 9.4 and it's a piece of piss to relaunch. It sure does give a lot of power but certainly managable for me.
I have spoke to Oh so many boarders, several of them have started on things like the wipika freeairs and the ATV on 4 line and they have completely regretted it. Although they admit they are good kites they just don't tickle there taste buds as much as the higher spec kites they have ( one has a lift 9.4 and 12.2 other has a black tip 12.2).
I do not want to go the mid spec kite route and lose hmm 30-60% on my kite. I may however buy a second hand kite for higher wind.
