I just finished my first session on my new Nitro 7 12m. Easily the highest jumps I've ever done on a 12m! Just about the highest jumps I've ever done full stop!! Not just high but easy to do and the softest lands of any kite I've flown. What type of voodoo magic have you sewn into this kite Switch? Super happy with the kite. Super happy looking down at my mates :-)
I've got the 8 and 10m H3, and have about an hour on each so far. I'm 162 lbs and ride a 5'1" vader in the waves (don't do twin tips, not into strapless jumping, and never tried foiling). Had Element 5's (9 and 11m) and before that Element 3's and both of those kites were total game-changers for me, making surfing with a kite so much better and more fun and allowing me to push my limits.
I just took out my new 6m Element 6 and I absolutely love it. I went out in the the surf with winds around 30+ knots and man it was fun! the kite is super friendly, drifts very well and has a lot of power for the size. I jumped 12m (recoded by Woo) and the landings were very smooth and with a lot of hang time (almost like the nitro) so you can relax and control the landings nicely after a big jump without plummeting down. I think the switch team nailed it with this kite!
