First time out on my 9m 2019 Duotone Rebel. Just blown away at how good the kite is. Done more jumps in the 2 hours I was out than last season 😂. Going to make a huge difference to my progression and confidence in the air. I thought the 11m I bought a few months back was good, but the 9m is amazing.

Yup. That's the one.
Don't get more gear. Take your gear and go places!
Capetown or Barbados if you ask me.

15m soul on snow blew my mind, the stability and ease of use are incredible. Gliding on it feels safer than any LEI i have used, and I can hold it down at 30+knts on snow. Still waiting to get it out on water

Ride engine harnesses. I wen through a few harnesses in my 6 years of riding and finally found one that does not ride up when riding and does not fatigue me like any other harness I have used.

Agree with a previous post on door boards. The first Flydoor 4 I had was such a game changer for upwind pull. Extended my sessions. I also think the WFMG tall twin pump made pumping easier/quicker. Ripcurl fleece flashbombs they launched a few years ago with zipless also nice and warm v some of my older ones.
