It uses a Pro Box, which is wider than Tuttle and stiffer as a result. Powerbox is a windsurfing conical box with a single screw.
WTF! another box entering the scene?
Will there be an adaptor for plate mount? The board looks interesting
Oops! I meant pro box.

Pro box isn't new, it has been used by Taaroa and Sroka. I was surprised to see it though because all the other race foils are tuttle (Mikelab, enata, chubanga, delta) or plate

Looks like a great kite.......
It is. It's the Velocity. Still a great kite after all these years.
One of the best or even the best inflatable I've been riding with hydrofoil!

I hope that the same race bar with great lines and without a leash would be reborn.

Well done Cabrinha!

Very cool. I won't be there this year but should be back for 2020. Have fun! Wonder if there's a clever way to get the pro box onto the tiny dwarf craft. Nice to only have to turn two screws.

Fort 2 Battery was a great time again! Your legacy lives on!

Probably wont fit in a dwarfcraft, it needs a really thick board. The pro box is taller than a tuttle.
