Is the North Dice.........

Postby JamesVegas » Sun Sep 01, 2013 6:44 pm

A viable alternative to the Vegas in terms of unhooking? I am replacing my beloved 2012 Vegas' and I'm toying with the idea of getting the Dice as it seems like a good, do all kite. Trouble is that the video makes it look amazing for unhooking but sponsored riders make anything look good. My most technical trick is S-Bend to blind with surface pass at the moment so I don't want something that is going to hold me back.

Vegas or Dice?

I think it's why they called it a teaser.

IF you ride waves, as well as freestyle then you want the dice. If you are predominately wakestyle then no doubt Vegas. Sounds like you need to upgrade to the 2014 Vegas! But if you are looking for a deal on the 2013 Vegas... A bit more bar pressure than the 2012

Given North's reputation as a top kite company, why would they name a kite 'dice?'
Who is the marketing genius who came up with that?
Gee when I think of kiteboarding, sitting down to a card game comes to my mind first....
Whats the message? Flying our kites is a crap shoot - you never know what youll get???
