Hey guys,

I know I am being a bit vague here, (i.e. Comparing manufacturers and not specifically models) but any opinions would be appreciated.
I am an intermediate rider buying a 7 and a 9 soon. Due to the great prices and quality I am going for either a Griffin, BWS Noise or a Wainman (will import from US)
Looking for an all rounder as I surf and do freestyle 50/50. Also want to buy two from the same Manufacturer so I can get one bar and lines.
Cheers for any help/ opinions you can give.

I think it takes about 6 days from order, online order only
A 6 and 8 noise is more like a 7 and 9

Probably price due to the exchange rate

I would definately check out the Griffin Chimera 8/10.5 or 6.5/9 combo,i have been selling Griffins in NZ for a few years now and find Griffin to be one of the best kite suppliers i have ever dealt with,and the product and after sales service are awesome,get a demo on them you wont be disappointed.

Try the Griffins and you'll love them!! The wind range is awesome and quality/price ratio maybe the best.

Please tell us what do you think when you try them.

Go the Griffin's, great kites, the 'Argo's' are excellent for surfing because they have awsome drift down the line when on a wave and no centre strut increase boosting prowess.

Buy local, this country needs your money more than any overseas based brand or retailer.

Here's another kite to consider too Ozone Catalyst, call me on 02 95296894 for a special deal on 2 kites/1bar.
No pulleys, very direct bar feel, excellent range, I have not flown a kite that drifts better or steers more easily with one hand, super fast and easy relaunch, below the bar flagging, above the bar cleat rim, and the kite still havs excellent lift and boost as well as being fast back upwind.
