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
