Not sure if you've pulled the trigger on a purchase yet, but I'd be happy to help offer my advice. I've ridden all the Atmos and Focus in both constructions, and am partial to the Atmos in the standard construction. Sidenote - the Asylum is one of my favorite boards as well. I think you'll be happier overall with the Atmos coming from the Asylum, which is a decently fast freestyle board (comparatively). The Atmos releases from the water well (like the Asylum), drives upwind better, and lands soft for a flat and fast board. It will really allow you to do a variety of riding with it. Hope that helps!

Yeah, I am not fan of any brand. I buy anything that I feel comfortable riding. I have mostly Slingshot at the moment. But I did ride on Naish, Cabrinha and Switch kite gears before. Haven't tried Duotone or Core kites actually just because I have to change bar and lines as well.

Thanks. I didn't make the purchase yet. Waiting to give Atmos a try. I like my Asylum, I am not giving it away. Will be good if I get something similar and just add a little on it.

If you want to send me a DM on here I'll do my best to help you find a demo.

How does something like the atmos compare to a board like a nomad or custom?
