I love tuning kites, always have. I’ve learnt that the Blue and Yellow settings on the bridal can have a huge impact on the 2020 NEO. For offshore spots like Ponta Preta and One Eye, the Blue setting is really good. It also makes the kite faster, which is great for freestyle and looping. In side, side-on conditions like in Brazil and Morocco, the Yellow setting helps the kite drift better. I generally ride the M Click Bar on 22m lines which gives me all the options I need without having to switch up the bars.If it’s howling and I’m on a 5-6m2, I’ll use a S Click Bar.
The design this year is completely in the right direction for my goals and the direction we want to take the sport. It makes me want to ride every day and anywhere, even in the worst conditions and most challenging moments. It’s a machine.
