fine - neat - cool.
easy but I swopped the lines for a quad of Ozone 360kg.
landing the kites a glorious nightmare. I thought it was me until I read other peoples accounts. Gentle and progressive use of the brake lines yields best results; it's worth practising - it's great when it works.
This is a kite for big winds. It turns fast and is at it's best figure of eighting in the centre of the window running in a force 6 wearing out your Vans in as long a powerslide as your arms or the beach will sustain. On the wheelie board it's got loads of grunt but being small and fast it's easy to overun and be left with a malevolent bunch of power at right angles - angels in the sand.
It's quick - it's furious - it's glorious - it's the way foward. For under £500 you can collect a cool board, a great kite and a fine pair of kevlar pants - do it.
