He must be talking about the release of a 12 meter that turns like a 9 and pulls like a 17.









That or something that has to do with cuben fiber.

It's a new Helium 5X compound.
Will make our kites impossible to drop.
Everybody will jump twice as high!

The possible extra medal, carbon boards, foils, tube kites, $1000 fin sets, and $2000 hydrofoils - making sport more accessible and affordable to developing countries and youth than ever. lol
I see the average age of kiteboarders as about 75 right now, the development of more expensive specialized equipment and disciplines has clearly done wonders to attract youth :-)

The industry will work with locals to reverse kite bans and prevent closures.. In my dreams!

Toby made a deal with all the brands to have an "Airstyle T-Handle" included with every TT sold from now on!

My guess.... The big players in the industry have collected their resources to form a body of some kind to promote the sport within all media mediums. A more concentrated collective effort?

Not that this changes what most of us do...but it might attract more young athletes?

Actually Fck knows... :cry:

Someone has invented a common sense pill that kiters will find highly appealing, thereby ending kookiness forever?
