Sweet deal! The new Spleene kites arrived yesterday! They smelled new, and the fabric had this wonderful sound of “new” when you touched them. Awesome.
We got a Spleene SP-X and a QX
A 14,5 m2 SP-X and a 9 m2 QX. Why did we chose them? Because we are two riders, I am a heavy-weight dude, and my vife has almost no weight at all. I like slow and big kites for training handle passes; I think the SP-X will be perfect for that, but also a smaller one to boost big-airs and kiteloops with in stronger winds. I think the QX will be great for that. And, we still have a good 7 m2 kite left from the earlier deal. So we have a 7 m2 allround kite, a 9 m2 allround kite, and a 14,5 wakestyle kite. I think we will manage to cover the most wind conditions in Finland for us both with these three kites. I think we will trade the 7 for a 6 m2 later for getting more high-wind opportunities. But they are anyway quite rare.
Anyway, here are some more pictures of the goodies, I just wait till I can start using them:
Now I just wait for our trip to Egypt in four weeks so that we can test the kites. Stay surfin! // Jonathan
