Biggest regret purchase was my very first kite. Got addicted to this stupid sport and have now wasted 10+ years of my life just going in circles.😳

I give them credit, they did a good job with warranties during a tough time. I'm sure they took a big hit on that first round, but it appears they have solved the failure problem with a better sensor and a water proof case.

12m Wipika Amp ca. 2004. I bought it to "upgrade" my 2001 Airblast. The Amp was grunty, heavy & didn't depower well. I had my most serious kitemare incident with that kite. Eventually I threw it out & went back to using the Airblasts for a couple more years until Best Waroos came along. A few years later I had a similar experience when I upgraded my 12m Waroo for a 2010 Best Nemesis. Terrible kite - no low end & had a tendency to stall unless really powered up. Eventually I threw it out & went back to using the Waroo.
