Both the RRD Obsession 9 m and RRD Passion were the kites of choice during the day.  The Obsession 9m on 5-line mode provided for some great unhooked wakestyle riding and even some big low megaloops.  

The RRD Bliss LTD was also a favourite for riders with similar boards like the North Select and Carved Imperators - the RRD Bliss provided equal performance at a great price point.  The RRD Rad Pads are extremely comfortable on the feet providing ample cushioning on the bottom of the feet and good solid control of the board with the adjustable foot straps.
