I can tell you all that this season I am going from carrying a 6, 8, 10, 12 quiver to a 7, 9, 11. The 11 is a juiced kite, the 9 a beauty and the 7 has a massive range, I had it out in conditions I would normally have been on a 6 and lit on but had a great session.

How much do you weigh John?

Given the power of the new kites, I’m dropping my 9m One in favour of the 8m Rise.  From there I’ll see if I need to change my 12m at all.

Spending dosh on home improvements is catching up with me. For 2010 I will probably stay with a two kite quiver of Rises’. At 64 kilos (140lbs’ish) that will be the 10m paired with either a 6 or 7.

Of course if I win the ‘Lottery’ tonight I’ll throw in the 8m and get 6, 8 and 10. Maybe the ‘Mini’ Mako too….....

So does the 11/7 combo replace the 12/8? I am at a loss now. I might have to change my order to 11/7 from 12/8.

No, the 11 is an 11 and the 12 is a 12…and so goes it for the 7 vs 8. Bottom end for the 2010’s is roughly the same as on the ‘09s - the difference in range is on the top end - size for size, the 2010’s have a lot more!

Just wondering how that top end becomes apparent, would you have more depower with the same amount of trim? Or does it mean that the kites deform less in gusts or when riding overpowered?

The 2010’s are amazing in that respect, they just don’t deform at all. They are soooo rigid it’s unbelieveable. Windrange wise I’m trying to figure out my options as well. 75kg and I tried the 11m in 18mph. Super sweet. Tried it in 25mph and iit was a bit of a cheek clenching ride with a good length of rope through the cleat. These babies certainly have some power.

I was thinking that if I went 11/7 instead of 12/8, I could sacrifice just a little bottom end and get a lot more range on the top end side. Most of my winds are 17+ (mph) up to 30-35(mph). Right now when I am on the 8m (2008) I can’t handle any more then upper 20’s. Noo noo, I am the same as you , 75kg. Plus if I go 11/7 then I can get only the small bar? Would that work on the 11?

Damn I cant remember what size bar it was when I demo’d it. Definately wasn’t the 60cm one though. 50cm I think.

I’ll be honest I’m torn. The 11m was sweet as in 17 - 18mph for me. Gives you so much confidence to try stuff and you’re very nicely powered. 25mph -  hang on. I’m half tempted by the 10m I bet there’s very little low end difference and I want a kite that’s in the sweet spot from 18 - 25mph or round about.

Smaller I’d be tempted by the 8m. I tried the 6m and it pulls lovely, gets you going early but it felt too small for me and you get very little float in the jump. It’s probably going to be frightenly good on a surfboard. We wre in winds at abvout 30mph I’d say. No trim pulled in and no worries. I’ve no idea what the top end on that kite would be. Loads left for sure.

Yo John

How are you finding the 11m buddy? Guessing you weigh somewhere between 70 - 75kgs before your hair gets wet.

I still do not have my 9M Rise I ordered in Sept..
Any idea when the kites and bars will be ready for delivery.
I know it keeps getting pushed out. I would rather have it right than shipped too early, but just wondering.
Thanks

Guys, I want some mental backing here. I’m a 98kg/1.90 powerhouse *cough* and I’m going to renew my quiver. I want to ride when I want, so 13knot days as well as 35+ to fill up my GPs highscores. Now I’ve met the high end of the 8m ‘09 at 40ish knots, will the 2010 take it further?
I would build my quiver around the smallest kite, knowing that both 10 and 11 are the super sizes. So 8m, 11m, 14m? Another option maybe 7m, 10, 13?
Those of you who flew the 2010s, any thoughts?
Note that there will be a Mako King involved in addition to the Mako 140 (which I wear when I sleep)

I’ve had these same thoughts.
Now I am closer to finding out.
How does that mid size Rise feel?
This virgin 11m is sitting by my back door, ready to go when the wind blows next.

I’ve been checking it out, wondering whats in store.

and, well, I’ve been wondering which beer goes best with the 11m?
Pyramid Thunderhead pale ale, or Red Hook’s Slim Chance

This will have to do until that next stormy wind forces me to pull this string right here, and enter the “11th dimension”!

C’mon winds!
