There are, but generally they are a quiet bunch because exhaustion from kiting all day incapacitates them from typing raving reviews about their kit. :D :D :D

I've posted this before, but here is a comparison on the 15m One and 17 Zephyr video I made:

Ive owned an Airush One 15m for lightwind days since Feb. I mostly kite in ocean. I love this kite. Super light, stable, WILL NOT backstall. Dumps power with bar throw. Good boosting and pretty fast for a 15m. I owned a Bullaroo before and this kite dominates that piece of @#$t. EASY relaunch, super simple to setup. If you want a lightwind machine for waves or flats this one strut odd looking monkey is alot of fun. Ive been so happy with it Im considering a Lithium or Varial to replace my 12m Convert.

Been using them since last summer and they are the best wave riding kite I have ever used by virtue of the light weight. They just stay up no matter how hard you charge down the line at them. Unhooked is ok when underpowered. Got the tube of my life last year in Indo with the kites.
In Maui this year got some incredible days in lightwinds when no one else was out because they didn't have kites that could handle larger waves and lighter winds.

I just got a 15 yesterday and began to use it for training. Its light weight will keep it up on a gnat fart and the simple single strut makes set up short and easy. It has some good power in light wind too. I had a 230 pound student rotating up onto a board in winds that were about 10 to 12 mph.

I'm not an owner, but i rode my friends 9m, and it was a super solid kite. Super stable, jumps good, relaunched great, and had a generally nice feel in the bar. I only rode it in flat water for about 30 minutes, but would really like to ride it in the surf, seems like that is where it would be ideal, but yeah, its a sick kite!!

Bit the bullet today and purchased myself a 9m. I'm very happy! Really looking forward to playing around with it's tuning options.
