Btw, i forgot which pads you use?
That board comes with "Liquid Force" pads. Which i "personally" know since i learn kiteserfing on a LF board with that same LF default pads.
Well,they are fine, but their "velcro" thyngy dies quick. So i expect that when the board came - i will have to remove them anyway (will i want it or not).
I think you mean the straps. I find LF works good to. But the stock straps of Flyradical goes bigger. If I am right Toby got 2013 straps. Even bigger. Would like to try them also. The 2011 were not so good to adjust. But not necessary if you put on biggest size.

If there are no option one day anymore, I will start offering my own products to keep it going. There will be no Airstyle on my level and even higher without the right gear!
For kites the Flysurfer foils are great for Airstyle, since they have the lift and float, plus being slow, therefore calm in the air. The only problem is for the 19 and 21, that they turn too slow for tricks where a kiteloop is required, like the Jesus Walk.
For tubekites I need to test now.
Toby a post from a while back. So where we at with airstyle gear then as getting a 2011 dyno is impossible now (almost) plus a micro hook. Where we at and what's the plans?

The smaller the board, the more powered your kite can be.
Important for me is also the weight. The smaller, the lighter most of the times, but that will be a disadvantage for e.g. Kick flips. The wind will take it away.
Important are also big straps. I see many riders with problems getting back into the straps. Once I show them how huge mine are, they make them bigger and then land the boardoffs easier.
Hello once again Toby!
The new question about the board
- What year is it 2010?2011?2012? (Atho i think Radicals didnt change a lot for the last 3 years). Anyway...
Question: What is the main "advantage" of that bard to you? Is there anything special in the shape of the board or the main idea here is only that its a small one (129x38)?
Because ive check the market recently and i actually couldn't find a lot of boards which are less than 134\132sm.
And seems like Radical 4 S which is 126,5x37 is the smallest board on the market. And i was only able to find some hardly-known manufacturers with same small boards, but seems like North\Cabrinha\F-one just dont make such small boards at all.
So, is there anything special in the "shape" of the board, or you dont give a damn about the shape - you just buy it because its the smallest one you can get?
Are you going to grow a little rat tale and change your name to Toby too? ha
