THe Rev is a sick kite, said to be the best for wave riding.. :banana-parachute: THe RPM is a smoother version of the Fuel.. :scared-eek: It's allot like the Rev too... Ollie- You'd be SICK un-hooped on this thing :happy-jumpeveryone: .
I think the bridle is the key, but I also really like the canopy. THe kite will be good at big loops because it powers so smoothly but it also pivots on a wing tip, crank'r over and it turns super snappy- But the nice thing is the smooth steering, also the bridle must have overcome that "Lost Steering" componite found on most C-kites.. What ever it does- it works, :text-bravo:

Waves at LV are straight on-shore wind, aren't they? You can air off a wave and the wind carries you the same direction as the wave is moving, meaning you end up landing right back on the face if you get the timing right. Only problem is you end up on the beach after 2-3 airs.

La Ventanna is a kiters wet dream!!
When it's really pump'n (El'Norta or whatever) the waves can get overhead. I went down to the rocky point known as La Buffadora and the surf was lining up, lefts and RIGHTs. THe place can get REALLY good!! Smooth desert winds most of the time!!

Having good de-power is nessarry when your riding in a tight space like that.. I used both the Rev and RPM. Both of them were delightfull! Wave riding lefts was another plus for me!
