I rode the 9m One today - here is the graph - http://www.ikitesurf.com/windandwhere.iws?regionID=138&siteID=224 .

This sensor is approx 20% high, and I was riding between about 1:30 and 3:00.  I’m 145-150 and was really impressed with the low end of the kite. I have a 12 One also, and would normally have put it up but I really wanted to break in the 9M.  Conditions were side-onshore with chest to head high shorebreak. I had no problem blasting upwind and easily planed through the holes on my Mako board.

This kite is pure magic - super fast, stable, turns on the dime, and VERY low bar pressure, but I knew exactly where the kite was at all times if I went down in the surf.  If you are a lightweight, ride a surfboard, or live in a place that gets some wind, this is the One to have.

I would say the wind range table is accurate - I fall into the 110-150 lb category and I think the 9M will work in the range shown for me.

This is all very helpful & good.  I’m new to kiting (another windsurfer switchin’ over) and I’ve decided that The One is The Kite.  I’ve got a 16m coming in about a month; sounds like production is cranking trying to keep up w/orders!

Sounds like everyone likes it; I’m so stoked I’m dreamin’ about it @ night.

I’ll be checking in w/the perspective of a total newb in about 3 months…..
