I'm currently on a 132 Underground FLX and 5'8" JL Surfboard. I had a D-Wave this summer. Fun board but coming from a surf background I like the JL better since it gives a better surf bottom turn. Feels alot more like a paddle surfboard. The D-Wave lowend was about half way between the FLX and JL Su...

I'm in the same boat. I have a brand new 07 7M waiting for wind. Currently have 06 9M and 14M too.

When does the 11M start for you?

Thanks for posting that video. What are the dimensions on the board in the video? Looks like a nice fast wave board. I used to paddle surf a twinzer fish a while back that had that "swirty" speed.

These are the best I have used. Not the best looking but they work great since they fit really close to your face. They also stay on really well.

Galcier Gloves are the best I have used. I add the Polypro liner when it is really cold (Less than 40F).

This summer while riding my 14M Waroo in the surf I relaunched it a little hot and my old Cabrinha barend snapped in half. I was left with 2 front lines and the left rear line. Kite just crashed and depowered itself. Lucky for me it was a beach break so I just drifted in. Braking a rear line is not ...

To me the 5'0" Rocket Fish felt like a kiteboard were as my 5'8" feels very similar to my standard surfboard. I think it gives a better bottom turn and off the lip. Also the extra volume gives it more glide and better lightwind performance. That being said I wish I still had the Rocket Fish around t...

Hi Guys, Great posts. I'm a surfer turned kiteboarder. Last year I rode the 5'0" North Rocket Fish and this year I'm riding a Jimmy Lewis 5'8"X18.5" surfboard. The Rocket Fish felt too small. I love the JL since it rides like my regular surfboard but it tends to beat my knees up 2 hours into a sessi...

Hi Guys, I have been riding the Peter Lynn kites for a while now. My last quiver was 10M, 13M and 19M Venoms. This winter I added a Waroo 9M for the crazy windy days. I planned to use the Waroo 9M on days when it was blowing 30+ mph. Mainly I was looking for a small bow with 100% depower for the nas...
