Comment

We had our first legitimate day of wind and waves here in Puerto Rico and I was able to put the Neo through it's paces. The wind was side shore and 20 knots. Waves were about head high. We rigged a 6, 7 and 8 meter, all of which worked very well for me (Yes I was able to blast upwind on the 6!). I weigh 175lbs and like Goldie Locks, found the 7 meter to be just right in these conditions (I like to be super powered while at the same time not over where the kite dictates what I am able to do with the wave).

Personally I love the strong bar pressure that the Neo offers, I feel like I am driving a high performance sports car when flying the Neo, where I can feel every crack in the road.

The drift of the kite is amazing. I took several waves where I could just park the kite and stay in the pocket without moving the kite at all. When the wave would section out with the flick of my wrist I could instantly turn on the power to make the section and get back to surfing the wave.

The thing about this kite that truly amazes me though is the power on the low end. You can fly this kite 1-2 sizes smaller than you would with any other kite. If you don't take this into account I can see why you might have a bad experience with this kite.

To sum this review up, the 2015 Neo is everything I have ever wanted in a wave kite. I have not been more excited about a kite in years, thank you North Kiteboarding for making another amazing product!!!
