Session 24 of the of the 2018 season: Some new gear to try out

Highlights: Another summer like day with a new toy to try out. Almost didn't get the chance to try my new 2018 9M Naish Pivot kite. When I arrived back at Blown Away it was already blowing 7M. So I rigged the 7 and rode for 2 hours. By 6 pm the wind lightened a tad so I decided to rig the new 9M. Rigged it up and gave it a whorl, reacted nice quick turning, jumping was lofty. good power when turning the kite, overall a good reaction was had.
Did a lot of reverse side toeside, some very successful reverse carving and some lofty jumps with both Naish kites the 7 and new 9.
