I may have missed it, but when do you expect the 2010 Rise’s to be available to purchase from local dealers?
Also, will the 2008 bar work with the new kites?

I believe OR is targeting mid September for the kites, but it may depend on where you’re at. However, after a golden session on the 09 8m Rise Venturi last Saturday I can’t really think of anything better… I was flying my big ass around like there’s no tomorrow, shooting upwind, looping it, ownage!

Yea, I’m torn between purchasing the ‘09 8m Rise or waiting for a 2010 9m to compliment my 12.  At 165 pounds, and
normally lighter conditions, I’m leaning towards waiting for the 9m for the low end.  Decisions, decisions…..

I weigh a little less than you and my 8m is a great complimentary kite to my 12m. Not that there will be a big difference between the 8 and 9, but I bet you could get away with an 8/12 combo if you wanted and have a bit of overlap between the two.

Hi,
I am 75kg and I have a 8/12 Rise08 kites and would not like anything inbetween. The 8 starts to work so soon, that there are many occasions thet my brother flies Rise 12 and I use the 8, and we weight the same and we both have fun with what we are using.
Greetnigs,

True, even with my 07 Rises of 8 and 12m the overlap is already quite large. (78 kilos). I would even consider a 12 and 6, but we had a lot of wind lately… smile
Mid september…. just before winter… cruel… wink

Hi. Why you guys are not redesign your kite bag? Bag have no straps to attach pump and board. Also not possible to carry the kite when struts are inflate ((

Hi Surf vs Kite, 1st of all, welcome to the crew!
I can see you’re fresh here, last year there was a lengthy discussion on how we wanted the new bag, read and weep: http://oceanrodeo.com/forums/viewthread/1145/. The previous design had extensions on top and below, and a lot of zippers to keep it together. I’m so glad we got rid of that!
I was pro board straps and pump on the outside, but now I can live with the pump inside, there’s plenty of space and it makes for a clean package.
Inflated struts - there’s no real need for that as the time you win by not pumping them you easily loose over closing the strut valves. I wonder who uses them all the time - if at all, I only use them when it’s really really hairy.

If you’re interested in fast kite folding and saving time > longer sessions, check this out:

I agree on the board strap.

I don’t know how the nw bag is designed but what annoys me is the zipper and the backpack straps on the 09 bag. I always use the backpack straps, so the zipper is open.. and yes a lot of sand gets into the bag.. a bit difficult to get out…
So is it an idea to skip that zipper and just attach the straps to the bag (with 4 buckles for those who don’t want to use them)?
Regards,
Arjan

Ok, so as a lucky local (relatively) OR dealer, I ended up with one of the inital batch of 2010 kites from Nitnat…

I rode a few different sizes there and as always, they were really nice and stable, good turning speed, enjoyable jumps etc, but I was thinking “jump higher, hang longer”... i don’t REALLY notice it… ok maybe like 5%, but nothing noticable.

I got a chance to ride the 2010 10m this past weekend in some serious wind 20 to 30 knots and then 35 to 40 knots on a 6m ‘09 Rise… I weigh in at about 95 kg (205 lbs), and JESUS!!  Forget 5%, I was waiting to come down on the XPD… seriously, I was sitting up there so long I was having to sine the kite at the pinnacle so that I didn’t over fly it and plummet.  Rarely ever had to do that before.

Ross… I’m a believer.  That kite goes BIG!
