I have to Echo the remarks made by others about the DNA.
We have stocked our kiteboarding school here in windy Perth, out with 4m, 6m, 9m and 12m DNA kites for teaching beginners.
We have made half the bars 15m and the other half full length (25m).
These kites are the "ducks guts" in terms of safety, relaunchability, and stability. The kites are also super robust.
As a school or surf kite, they are unbelievably good, can't speak highly enough of them. As a riding kite for freestyle, I'd rather ride the FLOW SLE as it flies a little higher in the wind window and certainly boosts and hangs better than the DNA's.
We love our DNA's and have given them a beating in our busy school over the last 3 months with little effect to the kites.
As a surf kite or beginner, make it a DNA, you just can't go wrong!
