Have found the 2014 Rebel very similar in feel to last year which I love for down the line waveriding. A few nice upgrades which feature on all the kites this year to the trailing edge and the new valve consolidating North as the best built kites on the market.
The Dice is also super nice for waveriding. Needs to be worked a bit more than the Rebel but the responsiveness is the best i've felt on a bridled kite. Great depower and drift the new Dice also works amazing unhooked.
Would really recommend the Dice if you are into freestyle and waves and like to unhook, also its 4 or 5 line so fits whatever style. Would say go a meter bigger than the equivalent Rebel.

I go for the Rebel most of the time as it suits hooked in riding, has amazing depower with great low end and eats gusts! Best for heavier riders or people who want to ride with a surfboard and boost huge hooked in jumps on the TT from time to time.
