Andy Yates - Ozone C4 in New Caledonia
Posted: Feb 22, 2013
"I'm currently in New Caledonia shooting with the new Zephyr before its upcoming worldwide release on March 1st.
Between sessions on the Zephyr, I've had some windy conditions awesome for shooting some clips on the new C4.
I am really liking the new C4. It's one of those things; you know the first moment you fly something if it's a winner. For me it was the first launch on the C4, and I knew right then and there that this kite is going to deliver. And from there it just got better and better, further exceeding my expectations.
It took virtually no time at all to get accustomed to the kite. This is unheard of in a kite. Everything is very intuitive and it's a real testament to the work Ozone does behind the scenes tuning and always developing their kites for the better.
It has unparalleled performance both hooked in and unhooked, as well as an extremely solid feel. I don't have to worry about the kite for I know where it is all the time; a very direct feel. On a side note, did I mention the Ozone kites look freaking amazing!?!? Visually appealing is an understatement; they look insanely good!
Looking forward to seeing where my riding progresses throughout the year. I've only been on the C4 for a few months and already it feels like I've been on it for years. I can't wait to see where the C4 can take me."—Andy Yates
