Re: Who makes the best kite boards straps?

Used the Carbrinha Sync, H1 and H2. H2 is way better and secure than the H20 in my opinion, very snug and no movement. gator1, have you actually used the H2O? It just came out for 2019.

Nothing new.

All the "new school" freestyle moves, people where already doing them at the start. Things just go in cycles, C kites then flat kites then C shaped kites, back to flat kites eg Ozone Edge, Crazyfly Hyper, Cabrinha AV8.
