Dude, thats awful, I hope you get it back.

I have an all black set up too and lost it while relaunching a kite last year.... thankfully in a small bay.

1. It was impossible to see in the dark water

2. It swam downwind/wave super fast.

Eventually found it lightly bouncing off the rocks in the bottom of the bay. No damage.

It now has a neon green strip around the rail that makes a really big difference when spotting it while in the water. Truth is I'm also way more conscious of its location due to the trauma of having lost it.

I really hope you get yours back, looks like a very sweet ride.

It’s of course horrible but knowing how Onda 633 is foating (what i think its worst thing of this super top wing) always write phone number on foil board desk. Can’t understand why lot of kiters don’t do this and not writing it, even on tt. I even wrote my phone number on kite pumping place.

A non kiter friend of mine found a TT on one of his long beach hikes after a storm.. I did a shout out on a kite fb page in that area. Found the owner. The board had been at sea for 2 months!

It's just duct tape
