It seems to be a discontinued line from I can see. None online looking for a bit. Might find if I look harder, but all say out of stock. Their may be an equivalent. Most are the full deck pad. Could always do what buell is doing and get my knife out I suppose. Been working on some of those more advanced board throws you have in your vid Toby, with a decent amount of success but spending a disproportionate amount of time in the water still... :D


Well I think I just bought one of the last ones off amazon. Have also ordered the creatures of leisure tail block locally just to see if that might do.,

Still available in Germany http://www.dakine-shop.de/de/detail/ind ... icle/37091 but yes Dakine seems to have discontinued them.

Ocean earth has a version too. http://www.oceanearthstore.com/tail-kick-grip-tail-pad/

Gorilla and Clayton also have tail blocks.

I just got the new Escape 2015 and I really love it. I was a bit hesitant at first since I couldn t find too much info but this really is a great kite. I replaced a 12m Core Xr3 with the 11m escape. I think you will hear a lot more about these kites. Great feedback, lots of range, great lowend. The hangtime is excellent. The quality is top notch. And this kite is so easy to fly :-)

Great work guys !
