Comment

This kite is my bread and butter kite and gets used every few days, showing no signs of wear yet despite its light build. Goes perfect with my Nugget and charges upwind, then floats well when riding waves giving you power when you need it. Keep it moving and it works great in waves too, again despite it being aimed as a race kite. Perfect light kite with all directionals, surfboards as well as my raceboard. When used in stronger winds the bar pressure gets lighter but with great bar feedback you know where the ktie is all the time. Loops can be tight when needed and not overly powerful, no real powerspikes to pull you off your board. Charges upwind and gets more power as you pick up speed. Easy kite to use, not too technical at all and doesn't have any weird quirks. My wife loved mine so much, we got her one too so now were both out there loving it! Highly recommended for sure to my friends, 2 of them bought one too!

Comment

There are only short periods of well Wind at my homespot. The wind is unstable and very gusty. But it is no Problem for my Dyno (Size 15).
The kite keeps cool all the time and moves when you tell him to move!

Sometimes it's a little bit tricky to close the valves correctly, especially because of the amount of the valves.
But you only have to pump it up for a small time in order to have fun and joy for long time!

I missed only one clear information before I bought the kite:
Is it possible to fly the kite with the Quad Control Bar?
