I use this kite for everything from waves to freestyle.
It is easy to use and flies as well, if not better, than any other kite. This is my all time favourite kite. It flies very well in low winds and high winds.

Comment

I have been a North rider since 2010, I started on the Fuse (2 seasons), Evo, (2 months) and have been riding Rebels for the last 3 seasons. For my style of riding its perfect. My ideal day of kiting consists of 3 to 4 hours cruising with mates in Perth WA, in 15 to 25 knots.
I ride a 10m from 15 to about 23 knots and then jump on my 7m from about 22 knots to mid 30's.
I like riding kites at full power without trimming, so my wind range is probably less than a lot of other riders, but prefer this to riding a sloppy trimmed kite.
In short I'm a die hard Rebel fan, great durability with the D2 Fabric, great resale value as i change my kites every year,. and excellent warranty and support wont see me changing kites or brands any time soon.
The only criticism I have is the bag has been reduced in bothcost and size.
1.Kite is now a pain to fit in what looks like a cabrinha bag from circa 2008, stop the 2 folds and go back to the single fold.
2.Pull tags on zips fall off they need to be more durable


Bottom line
