Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
sorry for the confussion on the Rage II kite sizes. I have the 10, 12, and 17m kites. I weigh about 195lbs and last year I rode 10, 12's and 16s Naish Aero 2's in the bay area. These were good sizes for me.
I will be trying out the rage II's next week in Baja. When I am back I will give a full report. I this is my second season so I certainly will not be able to give as complete a review as many, but I will express my impressions as best as I can.
As Marin posted, he and a couple other guys have them on order and should receive them soon. No one knows yet, but they should perform well amd be good kites. Unless you're planning to kite Sherman Island or the Coast much this season, you don't need an 8m, I would say. 10,14 and 17 makes more sense as you mentioned. Now that the Best 3 for 2 deal is not in effect, it makes sense to go with Windwing, certainly from a financial perspective.
Did they fix the nozels. Last year they had the stopper ball in them and they were a pain to deflate.
