Or maybe in his experience vagina's wear sunglasses? I don't know.


That... That made sense, Taut. Really. You should write for major publications. I think you are the only vagina that wears sunglasses. :lol:

I must say - that is the strangest comment I've ever seen Westozzy :roll:

Why can't you boost on a waveboard ?

In waves - definitely, yes :thumb:

Would never use a surfboard of course - but we are kitesurfing not surfing 8)

You can boost just as high and powerful with a waveboard in waves IMO, as using a TT, and make crazy powered kiteloops too if you want :naughty:

And then you can also RIDE waves, or spray waves, and go upwind.

Spot on. I use my kite-surfboard as I used my windsurf-waveboards. Going out and jumping, going in and waveriding.

The same level of limitations that a TT has in the surf a wave board has when boosting.

I will be the first to admit these TT limitations and counter this to a certain degree with a mutant.

But if you claim that a fin driven board with volume will boost as big than a tight TT loaded up rail well that's just utter rubbish.

enjoy your grass.
