North dealers across the USA have Reach kites in stock and for demo. Here's Aaron from Elite Watersports in St Petersburgh Florida with his early impressions on the Reach. Shot in 1 take, no edits, no script (the man's a pro).

Got a chance to fly a 12m in high teens low 20s and was impressed by it. Fast kite very fun to fly. Might switch to these but want to try a few other all around kites. Hang time and jumping is pretty good. I did unhook but only did a few raley's since it was very choppy. It did slack a little bit but honestly did not really even think of passing. Never crashed the kite so not sure how the relaunch is. I don't like the North bar. Foam is too soft for my liking and I don't like adjustable bar lengths. It's just more that could break.
