Rebel 2017 vs Switchblade 2017

Postby revdar » Sat Sep 16, 2017 7:45 pm

Hey guys,

I started Kiteboarding 2 months ago and I'm currently taking stuff from my kite school to go out. But now I would like to get my own stuff. I want to buy a 9m and 12m kite. I'd like to get some freeride done and get better at kitesurfing

Should I rather buy Rebel or Switchblade + bar?

appreciate your help :)

Thought this might help. Have to say, neither of them strike me as beginner kites. Though that does not mean they will be impossible to learn on.

Fifth line not the best for a beginner. You will invert your kite at some stage.
