I believe SunshineCoast Boardsports in Caloundra on the Sunny Coast are stocking the new 2020 North range.

Thanks epp....yeah I've read about it on there but nothing really in depth about it. Probably wait until Mac kiteboarding to finish off their full test.
Thought we might have got some feedback from Briskites demo day....maybe no wind that weekend?????

Anyway Epp if you can't find a descent kite to replace your 2017 10mt, I've got mine which I've used about 6-7times....might be able to work out a deal

Thanks Gateman but don't think I'd be able to get a demo from them as I'm further up North

We've been using both the Orbit and the Carve for a few weeks here now and the feedback has been amazing, don't take my word for it go grab a demo!
Here's a video from last week here in the UK, we've used both the Orbit and the Carve in our school also. Obviously the Carve is the better choice for beginners but the Orbit was well received too.

Ben at Unhooked Watersports Wollongong stocks North
I got my new 11m orbit today and had a run for a couple of hours. I did demo them in Sydney a few weeks ago and i found it really confidence instilling 7m 30-40kn westerly and was as comfortable to ride as a 12m in 18kn. I haven't looped for a few years but it really made me want to loop. Steering felt direct with great feedback and its stable in the gusts. It is super easy to jump. My 2019 rebel always felt vague and unsettled.

Just my initial opinion as not enough time on it yet to find negatives. I get the bar next week. Bag is really nicely finished

Look forward to hearing more from you when you really have put it through its paces
