Are you happy with your board ? if yes keep it.... so simpleFer1000er wrote:I'm asking for your help, because I'm feeling that the marketing of new board is getting in to my brain...and creating the feeling that maybe I need a new board....so maybe somebody already went for a similar process and can give some feedback.
I love my only all around board, a twintip 125 x 36 (cardboard 2005) I'm 65Kg, but like before Bows...I was loving my C-shape kites....and Now I'm asking myself how I could have enjoyed so much a C-shape kite.....
I base all my decision on Kiteforum comments from users like you...and this never fail...now my analisis is telling me that boards like NOBILE, UG and others, are clearly designed and build in a different way.
So the question is: New Boards are making old boards obsolete?
Thanks for your help
EXACTLY!!!!! Although I think the Thorn is the best board I have ever ridden, it doesn't make a two year old board obsolete. Neither would any other board, especially as has been said in this thread already if you like the board you ride. If you compare it to a board from 2001..then yeah it'll be completely different.munteruk wrote:I think board improvements have slowed down a little. The changes are incremental, not revolutionary. Snowboard construction and controlled flex are common now and some manufacturers have been doing this since 2004.
If you're happy with the board then I would disregard the marketing hype and keep riding it.
Kite design on the other hand is charging along at full tilt. There have been some huge gains made since 2005.
Yes, your 2005 board is quite definitely obsolete. You should send it to me to replace the board I bought used for $100 in 2003.Fer1000er wrote:So the question is: New Boards are making old boards obsolete?
