my ideas 30-35 knots is 6.4m 35-40 5.6m

don't think anyone make them in these sizes - size is way more critical to a good time at higher winds i reckon.

TEST DRIVE THE DICE FROM NORTH. I would go with a 6m in such wind to keep power and tension down the line. The Dice is light weight (3 struts) that is important for wave riding. It is smoother than the Neo that I used last year.

The 2014 drifter is an awesome jumper as well as great kite for wave riding. I've flown the 2014 drifter back to back with my 2013 switchblade same size and the drifter jumps better and with slightly more hang time. Haven't tried the 2014 sblades yet. Here is a pick from yesterday on my 8m drifter, wind about 18-20kn

RRD Religion 5 and 4m for no jumping
Switch Method V2 for wave and jumping (a new Switch Method V2 is at the price of an 2012 'A' brand kite and cheaper than an 'A' Brand 2013 kite)

Ii is better you get a ride with some good options, and then just get that one that you feel more confortable in all aspect... But, in my opnion, u should try the naish Park, I got a 10 m Park and it is just, maybe the 7M woulbe better to ur case ... Hards and high jumps, nice feeling unhooked and smooth on waves! Perfect relaunch..

however on freestyle way I got a Fuel, totally diferent!

I own 7m 2013 Park and it is a very smooth freeride good jumping kite but for onshore wave it was a disappointment to me, first, it flies too far upwind, second when you go down the wave towards the kite it becomes unresponsive the turns become stalled you have to bring it to twelve and then dive it the other way, no axial turning. The 5m OR Cypher which I got on sale is way better for onshore waves not as good as my 10m Airush Vapor but those are discontinued. Again there are 5m Cyphers on sale for $350 that's what you pay for a training kite but if you snooze you looze.
