I live in Boston.
I just added a new 10m Thruster '08 to my existing quiver of a 9m Nano, 12m Nano, and 14m Thruster. I ride Dimitri Pro Comp Skywalker boards 127x37.5 and 135x43, and the D-wave.

I LOVE my Thruster 12 and 14. The best kites i´ve ever ridden.

BUT, i am not happy about my Thruster 10. Cannot understand how this kite can be so bad and the 12 and 14 so good.

It pumps, jellyfishes and behaves badly, has poor hi-end range. In its sweet spot in nice even winds- its great- but thats about 30% of the time i ride it.

I´ll sell it to anyone, cheap. Make an offer. Lets see how good it is....

PM me.

It's funny how different people are and what makes a good kite for them. Everyone here thinks that the T10 is the best kite. Huge range and it performes so well unhooked (huge sweet spot). You can go from big air to unhooked without trimming the kite. You can do that with all thrusters, I know, but the T10 is just a bit more fun than the rest. The hangtime and boost is also huge. We all hate the T14 and 16 which many other loves...
