Looks like a discounted new 2020 kite might be a better deal.

Just found a 20% discount on MACkite, kite only, 15M 2021 $1,859 and 2020 $1,471, saving $388.

2021: https://www.mackiteboarding.com/01-cabr ... ding-kite/

2020: https://www.mackiteboarding.com/2020-ca ... ding-kite/

Adventure Sports (same ownership as Cabrinha) is showing the same discount.

I have the 15m from a few years back and really like, never have pumped up the 17m I bought at the same time.
