Oh, wow, so there are TWO openings for deflation! Great !

Thanks for that! now we know there a twice the chances to forget to close it! Plus TWO on the tips which makes it 4! Right.

Great kite, I have no doubt. Time will tell how it will really perform.

You are not “critically” thinking. Just pulling at anything to be able to bitch. I wonder where your grudge is. You are one of the few to have negative things to say about a kite in which you have absolutely no experience on. So basically your opinion is worthless. I dislike people like you, a self promoted “expert”. I cannot sit still when you spray your shit all over and claim it as informational or fact. So I bring to light your ignorance.

It performs really well Downunder.
I have a 10m and my 13 year old son flies with it, deep water and low wind (on and off and max 12 kts), small inland lake.. i was waiting for strange behaviour of the foil in hands of a young and new to "big" foil kites kiter... yes it dropped and did strange things .. but relaunched very easy.
And I discoverd it even flies with two open deflation openings.. didn't go out with it but it flies.

Yea it does act differently than I'm use to with the Sonics, I think the D profile and large space between the wing tips and last air inlets has something to do with it but I've been amazed how well it corrects itself and relaunches. I've made it a habit to reseal the buttholes after I roll up the kite to help prevent forgetting to do so on setup. I'm in such a mindset to get out on the water asap usually that I will admit I've forgotten once or twice in my past. Nothing more embarassing and annoying than having to land and correct it.
