North Kiteboarding 2020

Postby windsuks » Thu Sep 05, 2019 11:03 am

We just had an awesome day here in 35mph winds and everyone loving their time on the 9m Orbit
Feedback really could not be any better, ever single person was buzzing.
Just try the kites, then make up your own mind

I get it..and agree try before buy...but as you’re a dealer this is just marketing so I assume you won’t provide an objective assessment? Pro/cons?

To be honest I'd prefer to leave that to those that demo them.
I obviously have my own opinion but it is just that...my opinion, hence why I say just demo one for yourself. :thumb:
I see your in the UK, by all means give us a call and be more than willing to share my thoughts but my aim here was simply to get people to try them and stop slagging them when they haven't even seen them...weird! :lol:
The guy in the photo's attached is an avid Ozone rider, loved his Enduro's for looping and his Edges for the hangtime...he's just ordered three Orbits after demoing them yesterday.

Yup, as soon as he looped it he was sold on them and listed his kites the next morning, he'll have his new orbit's on Monday and we have more good winds next week so hopefully get some photo/video then.Once we get our full demo kit in we will be able to send up a demo kite I'm sure.

What’s the boost and float like on the Orbit? The Rebel has been a killer in this department and I’d be interested if the Orbit is just as good.

By the sound of it the Orbit wins in the looping department.

Rebel 2020 und Orbit are closely together. But the Orbit is faster and the Orbit has less weight in comparison to the top 5 strut kites (Rebel, XR6).
For example the Orbit 12m has 3.85 kilos.
