The latest shipment from Xenon hit the Windzup warehouse last week, including the new clothing line-up. The hat's are stylish and comfortable, available in black or blue in a range of pre-fit sizes. There is a series of T-shirts each inspired from this years board designs that look sick. Get in touch if you are interested in picking up the newest Xenon gear.

OK, it's final, my next board is going to be a La-Luz.
What's the difference between 2010 and 2011, I am a bit short on cash, does it worth the extra bucks to go for a new one or the 2010 will do the work?
thanks.

I have the 2011 132 LaLuz, i think it differs with the pads, they are better, better grip, also has a wider stance option for taller riders. I also think it's a tad stiffer (still soft IMO) and a bit more skatey, apart from that dont know. It's by far the best board i've had, have a read of all the stuff on here about them and if you can try one one, I did and felt at ease with it right away, good luck :thumb:

2011 wider stance, better pads, more rounded rail stiffer. Has a thicker top skin too which means it will hold up longer (eg better resistance to dents/dings/etc)

Took the Laluz out for a light wind session with the 15m Team C last night. I need to keep my kite lower :oops:

I see there was some footage with boots in there but mostly with foot straps. I wonder if the rider prefers straps on the laluz?

Got the Laluz 129 and 135, yesterday afternoon and went to test them right away ...

I almost didn't sleep day before ....

conditions 7 - 10 knots... not great but had to try it out ...
Flysurfer Speed 3 15m Deluxe, the 135 worked well ... I'm kind of light so ...
but the board has great upwind performance, wind picked up to 13 - 15 ... switched to 129 ... borrowed the 135 to friend, he is over 200 lb./95 kg and he was impressed as well ...

the board is rocks ... rides fast, very soft pads, comfortable,
First impression ... light light light ... and on the water I felt I'm gliding about the water .... it is like ride a cloud .... great pop ... no spray ... very happy with the board ...


:rollgrin:

I have a La Luz 135 2010 and I’m in love in every aspect. I had a few 135 boards such as Sky Pro and others but nothing to compare to my La Luz 135.
I am a heavy guy (190lbs of muscle :lol: ) and my biggest kite is Torch 2011, size 11m.
Normally I kite in 15-18 knots, choppy water and 1m waves (in winter).
The board is going upwind like never seeing and has a huge pop. The pads are very comfortable nice and smooth and yet 100% feel feedback from the water.

Graphics is not that amazing (once the board is on his back it’s hard to find – they fixed it in 2011).

Overall conclusion the best board I ever ride in all conditions of wind and waves.
