on their shopping cart, Ride 8.0 is $713. probably kite only price, don't know. looks really tempting even for an experienced kiter cuz of the price point. way to go Robby :lol:

That kite is fantastic. Someone I know asked me why I rode those kites because they had heard it was a beginner kite...it is not. Sure it is easy to ride, and to handle, but that is a quality we all want from our kites.

I think it's "mid-season" cos they've only just got the new board factory up and running... no?

I'm guessing it is because there are two hemispheres, and some people start their season now, others on the other side of of the year.

From a business perspective it makes total sense, since it secures a more steady income.

They have eased into it with the chargers the past 3 years, ride and fly last year.

For those of us who remember when kitesurfing came out...we were all windsurfing & Robby was playing around on this new thing that none of us were using, we all thought it looked kind of funny. Boy were we right!!! (extreme Sarcasm intended on the last sentence).

DON'T QUESTION THE MAN :jump: :jump: :jump:

Everyone should want a "beginner kite" for a 7.0 & 5.0. There isn't too much difference that you want in a kite when it's blowin 30k other than for it to be; stable, durable, etc., etc., etc.

Some of us ride all year round - I do not recognize your concept of season :lol:

At the local club, there's a 2013 catalog with all the twin tips Xed out with black markers... and different kites.

AW SHIT SON maybe they're actually 2014 kites :o :naughty:
