Been using the Jay Dynabar for errm probably 5-6 years now, ride mainly strapless surf but also still enjoy boosting when it's banging wind on the tt and the rare occasion I've used a fixed hook I've struggled!
Core Kites are just plain ugly ...just my 10 cents...my observation people riding them are eighter really good or how can I say political correct ...hmmm maybe not made for this sport...sorry for this very subjectiv posting
We've been using the Elevate for a few years now but the Wave bag (Mystic no longer does the elevate wave bag)
It's awesome for travel cos it rolls up so small.
Plus the weight saved could be an extra kite
