maybe flysurfer could do a rerun of the small p3's , now wouldn't that be cool -i'll preorder a 10
why not flysurfer , marshall amps do it , reissue old models that had great demand -i got a jubilee last year and its amazingly good

A 10 Isn’t small in my opinion.. 8) and I bet my Current Soul 6m is better than the P3 6m..

Just because everybody are selling'em like "ideal for learning" and they aren't.

I remember myself having "fun" with my "ideal for learing" kite takoon skoope 14m with it's backstalling and repowering again dragging you all beach through.

At least one thing it's true, if you don't die with'em you gonna be a better kiter for sure.

That star was love at first sight for me. I still have 10m Speed 4 Standard (pre-Lotus) which is more Psycho than Speed and it’s a good one.

Just recently I´ve discovered the Core Section1 for me (used). This model is already 6 (?) years old and new models are not available any more.
This kite is so perfect for my requirements! Really eye opening… you don´t always have to buy the latest shit to be happy!
