Brand new brand - Ventum, I got the chance to be an early bird so I tried.
The kite is open C shaped, they claim it is good for waves freestyle and also does nice air.
The 9m and 12m price was exactly as a 12m kite would cost of diff brand. I think that's a big deal, that made me curious so i went to try.
I am intermediate kiter 10+ yrs kiting, 6 yrs teaching full time. 74 kg rider and always riding on a 136x40.5 board. Minly air stuff, board offs, kiteloops.
Riding mostly betewwn 9kn -25n . The test was in Kenya, Diani for 3 months.
This time I used both 30-30 times at least. This is quite a good amount of session I think!
12 m from 12-13 knots OK, 14-17 fun, till 22 kn i held it, it was stroooong. BUt nice airs I went over 10m.
9m from 16-17 kn only till 23 maybe 25 (the wind was never too much for that here)
Pro: Price, it flies similar to a Dice or Ozone Enduro overall great speed, nice dynamic movements. 9 turns incredible fast, amazing kiteloop. 12 is OK turning very predictable, direct and reliable service from the kite company for replacements
Con: some afraid to buy small brands as it is harder to sell (not in my experience), I believe no big stock if all of your friends want it, probably harder to find replacement valves. Quality issues will be only figured in the long term, and i will update the post if any.
