Anyone want one? I got several on closeout and I have one left. pumped it up once, but some of the nipples leak where connected to the bladders. So you get a new kite that needs about 1/2 hour of work...

Re: Better depower/sheeting system??

I am really content with my above the bar systems, and I can't envision any below the bar system that would operate as easily. My North and best bars have east power/depower, and they are pretty easy to reach. Plus, the kites have improved enough that frequent adjustment isn't really necessary.

Re: Evo 08,09,10 what are the differences

I really like the Evo kites, but I had a 12M 08 that was a pig. Sold it and kept the 10M as my big kite - at 210lbs, it has plenty of pull for me in light conditions

Does peoples riding styles change with increased wind?
Yes! For mortals it does. Steady winds, not too crazy, are fun for practicing wakestyle. I wouldn't be caught dead learning a new handlepass in squally stuff. My kite quiver varies tremendously to reflect this.

Re: North Kiteboarding New: Neo !

Seems like the Evo was such a nice kite that it moved from a beginner market to a freeride/wave/freestyle kite. Leave room for a teaching/beginner kite in the lineup. Also, I think that 5 struts in the smallest Evos was too many. The kite was heavier than necessary.

Re: North Vegas 2009 - 14 m ??

I rode the 09 extensively, and my 2010 feels pretty similar... Way closer to the 09 Vegas than the rebel or fuse.... Are you sure you had it set up right? Best to rig the back lines long
