Re: Difference between 2015 and 2016 Crazyfly Raptor boards

Thanks for the info... I mainly use the twin tip for freeride and jumping. I love the old raptors for freeride and jumping. They pop really well and construction is awesome.

Difference between 2015 and 2016 Crazyfly Raptor boards

As a longtime owner of a few raptor pro models, all 132x41, I am looking to upgrade and realized that the 2016 raptor model has a new outline/shape, and by the looks of it, a new construction method.

Re: EH Ovando - who still flys these? Who has owned them?

I think Top Hat mainly rode and still sometimes rides the EH Rippehr... I think it was an 8m. see him mainly on switch kites now. I think he had an ovando but cannot remember. I had ovandos and sold them right after Eric shut down the company. like all the eh kites the valves peeled off, otherwise n...

I have had two raptor pros (one pro and one pro ltd) over the years and still ride them when not on directional. Great boards like Joe said. Great pop, easy on the landings, just an all around great freeride board that I would highly recommend. Great build quality as well. Had one for probably aroun...

Re: FireWire vanguard ?

I ran into Felix a couple of months ago with Switch kites and firewire at mokuleia and he was testing one.

Re: How do you want to be treated?

All I can say is that if the wind on Oahu does not pick up soon Taut may go crazy and load up this forum with a bunch of esoteric topics, using this forum as therapy... I feel your pain man... I am going crazy as well. wind, where are you?
