Got my first go on the 11m Fuel 2009... Winds were 15-20 knts. Very simple 4 line no nonsense setup. Kite is super smooth with constant power - coming from riding SLE's the past 2 years, i really enjoyed the constant power and direct feed back in the bar.
I could just lean back and edge me nuts off as compared to killing the power by edging to hard with the Bow/SLE type kite (always had that problem).
Jumps were good, but I seem to have got a little higher and floaty with my previous kite - i think it just technique that i will have to work on.
Depower in the bar is decent.
Only neg side was the bar pressure to turn the kite is heavy. Will have huge bi's and tri's soon
All in all i am stoked with the kite and can't wait to try the 7m unhooked in waves - i got a feeling its gonna be a gem. The '09 Fuel sits far into the window compared to previous years, so it should be great for down the line wave riding.
Bring on the 7m on 20's....
