kite advice

Tue Sep 08, 2009 9:39 am

Hi,

I'm a french kiteflyer with an intermediate freestyle flying.

I'm trying to improve in freestyle.
I'm currently flying the R'Sky's Nirvana and I would like to try another kite that could either help me to improve.

What are the the most popular versatile freestyle kite in your country ?

I've eared about the Deep Space and the Talon. What do you think about it ?

Thanks

Niki

Niki,

A hard decision, if you want a Freestyle kite - the Deep Space. If you want a kite that will trick better that the Nirvana but feel similar - the Talon.

My choice would be the Deep Space.

Thanks for the advice Aeri but as you can see, I'm leaving far away on a Pacific Island and kiteflying is'nt done very much around here.

That why I'm very interested in your feedback.

regards

Yes I'm leaving on an Island, one hour and a half fly north from New Zealand.

It's quite windy down here 10 to 20kts. Over 15kts I prefer kite surfing.

But regarding to my purchase don't bother with the wind, I should move to Paris within one year.

I have both the talon (std and ul) and the DS...
and I would be willing to come over and let you try them out if you'd like that...
