North Mono

Any rider reports? I haven't ridden a North for awhile but I'm really intrigued by the Mono for foiling and waves. :thumb:

Me too. I can't wait for some ride reports to be posted. I happen to be in the market for a new quiver of wave and freestyle kites.

There are quite a few kites already on the market that are geared towards Wave and Freestyle. North Dice, Airush Union, Ozone Enduro, Naish Park, F-One Bandit. What makes the Mono something you would consider over those?

Mono has been around for way longer then I have. Why they would give it to a kite is just weird, does that make the kite contagious?

Here are the characteristics/symptoms of Mono

The symptoms may include:

a fever.
a sore throat.
swollen lymph glands in the neck and armpits.
a headache.
fatigue.
muscle weakness.
swollen tonsils.
night sweats.

Does not sound conducive to how I would like my kite to fly...

First liquid force releases a kite called MOM and now this... running out of ideas much?

Now the North Mono
Next is the Cabrinha Uni

I've ridden to Solo in smaller sizes (never tried bigger than 9m) and love it. I'm stoked to try (not contract) the Mono. It looks really sick. I like this one strut thing
