This is just some more information for the previous review. Wind was 12-17 knots and waves were double over head and bigger on sets. I set the kite on light wind. The kite boosts very well on light wind setting, and there is a really nice hang-time. If you side-loop on your way down you can get pulled back up which is sick. So you get super smooth landings. The kite sits perfectly when I was riding down the line of the amazing waves, I found that the Nirvana lacked that. So I've used this kite from 10 - 20 knots avg gust probably being up to 25. I was still set on standard when riding in 20 knots and didn't feel overpowered! I thought I might have trouble relaunch it because its a C-kite, but it relaunches so easily! This kite, much like other Liquid Force Kites, has a huge range. Very very happy with it!

I tested this kite in really light winds - 12 knots
This kite is incredible, it has such a direct feel and at the same time incredible de-power. Its turning speed it great, and I was able to do a few kiteloops. There is a really nice pull from the kiteloops and the kiteloops are very smooth. Unhooking is amazing, I've never quite experienced unhooking like on this kite. When I did put the kite down, it was easy enough to relaunch. The quality of material and effort put into this kite and new bar system is great. As it was light I wasn't getting my biggest airs but they were still pretty big and floaty.
If you looking to start unhooking, looping or already do those. It is well worth demoing one to see what I'm talking about!
