I caught the 10m in action with my gopro helmet mount this last thursday at my local spot.
2 other riders were out when I showed up, Andy was flying a 13m cab and that other dude was flying a 14m north.
It actually was a great feeling to be on the smallest kite (the mako king helped with this), and I was able to easily point upwind
and sail to Boeing creek a mile or so upwind. I was hoping the winds were steadier up there, but the gust and lulls were just bigger.
The Razor is much more attentive on the downwind leg than my Rise, everytime I sine'd it, it really pulled quick and hard.
No waves in puget sound, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that this kite will perform beautifully in the surf.
I'm getting a feel for the top end too, some of the gusts at the creek felt like 25-30, and thats close to the limit of my comfort zone with this big board. (I weigh 210lbs)
This kite de-powers only so much, you need to use the board to control the power...kind of like a C kite.
The rewards are a some sweet jumps and lots of power when you need it in a tough kite that is quick because of its size.
I am really stoked about how the new Razor de-powers during a self launch deep in the window too.
I thought for a second I was going for a drag when the bar ripped out of my hands,
but the traction spike leveled off instantly and the kite was super stable off the front lines.
Very curious about the 12m's low end...its calling to me and I'm not sure I can resist that siren song.
