Let me start off by saying this isn't a review with all the funny jokes or super info. Just a real-world hands on account of my first time on one of these kites.

Went to Mullaloo today and waited for the front to hit. Only had the 10 supermodel to try. The kites are simple as. Simple bar, simple connections (only one knot of the steer pigtail, doesn't even have a lock on pump connection. Just push it in, pump to 10psi and pull it out. Don't know how they do it but it works. No mucking around.

Coming off Core XR6's I thought it might be sketchy sending a 10 in 30knts+ but no probs, same flying characteristics as a Rebel or XR6. You don't need to over think it just send it as per normal. These kites are powerful and they jump big. Thing that really stood out for me was speed. They're like a XR in the power department but fast as a Dice. Always a bit apprehensive looping a kite in strong wind day one but these are fast and smooth and give you the confidence to try it. Had a few stacks as you would expect from a amateur.

Going to wait till I can try the new V2 model before buying but at this stage I think my XR's are goneski.

Surprised there's not more talk about them.

2020. I'm surprised they wouldn't cover it. Who did you buy it off?

I've put my 8xr up for sale. Never had a issue with core except the bindings on their boards which I think are garbage.

I bought a supermodel 1 9m not long back just before the v2 launch. I can't get much height out of mine.and haven't been that impressed so far. I don't get to go out much though and haven't had decent wind to try it some more yet. will give it a couple more tries but if I can't get some height out of it then I'll be selling mine. Only had 4 sessions on it so far. Also have a core xr6 9m couple years old no issues with that one at all and plenty of height from that ohe
Also had a pivot 9m before that and the pivot seems way more powerful than o am getting from the SM maybe I just got an odd one.

This time of year is no good for comparisons. Made that mistake many times over the years.

Sounds like you don't know what your doing with it, I rode the v1 7mtr back to back with a sls evo 10 mtr at my local, it out jumped the evo in winds i certainly wouldn't of thought, drive and water speed were quicker' it certainly felt different and needed a bit of time compared to my ozones' but it left me wishing I had a 9 to play on that day
I took a good look at it construction wise and would put it alongside most premium brands
The bar n lines would be one of the best ive seen or used, spend more time on it and im sure youll
Get into it

Can anyone provide any feedback or a review on the Reedin SuperWave kite surf board? Are they worth a look? Or is it all hype from a pro trying to start a business.
I have been riding a 2015 5'8 Slingshot Celeritas (strapless) since new and it works well, the only complaint I have is the deck grip. It was rubbish from day 1. I noticed the volume drops slightly (26 to 24L) on the 5'8 SuperWave.
I can't seem to find a single review anywhere. I don't really want to be the guinea pig! Any info appreciated.

Sorry to hijack the thread but I figure they are from the same company!

Thanks,
