the low range listed is also accurate (at least on a larger (60+cm) kitebar)
i think the correct comparison is to a kitech FRS or pulsion or maybe even PLK's nova.
How does the marabou turn compared to the peak4?
my peak4 is a 5m....and the marabou is a 12m...so its kinda an apples to orangutans type comparison


i bought this is a lightwind option..and imo as a lightwind/freeride kite this kite excels.
i freely admit that i am not a big kite on a foil type of guy....so there was probably some bias in my initial rides.

but i had some pretty good sessions with the marabou recently..
i was in caymans and i doubt there was anyone else there attemping/foolish enough to be on the water a couple of those days
(gusting...to lightwind)

i'll say i am super impressed with performance in the 5-10 range(flag on a house looked like below)... it's just super stable and easy to ride on moses 633 and fluente/550 wings.
i took i nice superman spill after finding a sandbar at speed... but the kite stayed in the air somehow. (i still have not had the chance to relaunch yet)

the biggest negative it goes upwind about as well as a cloud (ie not well).
big spills in lightwind= good luck getting back to your board.


this is a good kite(for a 12m) if you want a freeride/lighwind kite for foiling...and i'd have no qualms buying again or recommending.

below.. size compariaon flysurfer soul 6m and 12m.
