Re: Shinn bronq vs Axis limited 2016 - carbon boards

And to me the performance of the Axis Limited is much better because of the description I gave, it has proper channeling for more grip and more tracking during hard landings. Most kiteboards are noodles, way to much flex, if you want comfort you simply need a more rounded shape and higher rocker. F...

Re: Mega Kiting Jump - The Longest Controlled Kiting Jump

I also think it is towing...how else is it possible? Agreed.. but remember that naish vid in the early days with top hat and the guy called eric? I met him once in Molokai. He'd just thrown his early C kite for a land based jump on the beach while the crew waited for enough wind to ride - wasn't ev...

Re: Shinn bronq vs Axis limited 2016 - carbon boards

Shinn technology is all based around flex - the hull is 3d, not flat, with a single concave. Putting channels in a board completely destroys flex in that area, hence why they look flat. That's the reason why shinn boards are like they are.. Also Carbon is not traditionally the material you want to u...

Re: Shinn bronq vs Axis limited 2016 - carbon boards

I know a lot about the Bronq. It's probably the most flexible board that Shinn make, that said also one of the most powerful and fastest. Take a minute to read the kiteworld test - I agree with it all.

Test below from kiteworld.

Re: Airush compact 5'5 active 2014 anyone??

Hey Chap - I've been asked to comment but you had some by email. It's quite a rare size, so I doubt there will be to many people who own them, though as you know I bought this one as a board to charge around on. One of the best things about these airush boards is the variety of fin setups you use on...

Re: Review of Airush Lithium 17m?

I've used it, and I was more impressed by the fact that it forward turns well considering the aspect of the thing - by that I mean it flies forward and develops power through the turn. The old Lithium 16 one (it was a 1st gen delta design) turned on the spot (like the old bandits) and didnt develop ...
