That sailing meme makes me want to quit sailing and take up sailing.

Is it hot right now to connect your click bar to your sonic race? And what colors give the best performance this summer?
That is my Grandma, many years later she is still a young and healthy living soul even at 86 years old, I will pm you her tinder profile in preparation for your swipe right! thx so much, she is a bit of a cougar - well presuming you are under 86, otherwise she is not interested so leave her alone.

Let's not forget that only 2019 gear can make your riding experience good. Anything older is so out of date.
It's already April, 2020 gear is behind the corner.
I woudn't bother go kiting with 19 stuff anymore. Those kites should be recycled into trendy vintage bags.
There is one thing for certain, 2020 gear will be lighter, stronger, faster, quicker turning, more powerful, and the best ever made!

Don't forget the new lit color schemes. They are going to be fire. Will Naish go orange grey, North.. purple? So exciting. We expect to see a spring shift to more pastel colours with any luck.

America's Cup 2021. Super affordable. Attracts the youth, who will give up kiteboarding to get a 70 ft monohull hydrofoil sailboat.

Absolutely! The sailing pathway towards being your very own Larry Ellison is clear, of course being on the boat at the time is not even required.

Wing foiling so hot right now, I am sure the kooks at World Sailing will claim that too! Absolute kooks.


I raced a pre foil Americas Cup boat on the Hauraki Gulf on a $100 twin tip years ago. smoked it.. and laughed to myself hard out!

So remember not all new kites and bars are necessarily better than their predesesor. There have been some changes for change sake over the years.
