Hi Sammy,

I've mostly ridden it on the cable and in pretty sloppy chop with the kite unfortunately. It does stay on top and doesn't catch too much at all for the length. I've only had a few onshore kicker days and it is really fun in the flats between the waves. IMO it Spins and flips like a dream and is really predictable in stronger winds but I've only had it down to 9M conditions. I think it is quite true to its roots in feel compared to what else is out there. The top deck contours work great with shoes and make it super easy to grab for me. I hope that you get a chance to ride to get your opinion. I think the link on the airush site will be working in a few days. The US should have some in stock any day now.

Cheers.
