North Vegas 9m 2008

Conclusion

The North Vegas 2008 is a pure freestyle kite. Using the standard 25M lines it's great for oldschool tricks. Quick, powerfull and great boost in the loops. Transitions in the loops are great because you can feel the kite at all times and there are no unexpected movements. This might not be the best kite for a beginner.
