Re: Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?

while its universally accepted that the umbrella is the undisputed king of sup foilsurfing with wind assistance fun... ...i believe the new inflatable pineapples have potential. while it may lack the higher speed stability of an umbrella(or even a carrot) ...the low end of a pineapple is really imp...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

at last back to something light and strong like mylar - it was soo good, but the surface delaminated due to a manufacturing error so that was the end of it in kiting. I hate bulky kites! and lighter bladders - they are the great weight problem. next - back to the simple days before the kite industry...

Probably no changes to the kite design, but with the conventional one pump system and the SUP inflation valve. Was that a Naish wholesale dealer form, or a shop order? Still no sign of...

Re: A tribute to the Naish Torch maybe
