We bought a Jester for my wife to learn on, and I loved it so much I bought one for myself. Rides smoother and faster than the Vanguard.
Are you sure about the "faster" part of your statement? :wink:

Re: Takoon furia phi, good for big air.

It's a very different kite than your old waroo. It will turn MUCH faster, and the feeling on the bar is ways more direct. I like the furias a lot in the medium and smaller sizes, they are incredibly dynamic. For big air, they are excellent for height (go really fast, then with a strong impulse stear...

Don't see any picture, Toby. For me it's just a black square. Also no action when clicking. Can you fix?

Re: The lightest snappiest surfboard for overhead waves?

as @knotwindy says, try the FW Vader. Personally, I would go for the kite version, because you will end up jumping it ;) , and double overhead is not too light on the material either :D

Re: Sri lanka july august

Good summary, Hendrik :thumb: A couple of additional details: * Kalpitiya Lagoon has a quite small area that is really flat (behind the Sandbar with the kiteschool). Depending on the day, it can get a bit crowded there. But there is the whole rest of the lagoon that is a bit more choppy, but nice fo...

Re: Sri Lanka Bentota any good?

Time of the year is certainly right - if there is a windy season there, it's now. This said, the further South you go, the less wind you can expect during South West Monsoon. I have no idea if there is any rental equipment in Bentota. Depending on how long you have for kiting, you could bring your s...

Re: Wheres good for summer waves?

@BrianMaiden: Check your facts and read carefully before you start a pissing match. I'm NOT promoting Kalpitiya, ok? If you do your homework, you will find that I said in many instances that Kalpitiya has no waves. I'm talking about KANDATHODUWA. Kandathoduwa is 40 km South of Kalpitiya, and gets SW...

Re: Anyone riding HB kiteboards?

I like the HB Anti for strapless tricks. I don't have one, have tried it from friends. It seems to hold up well.

For surfing (and my taste), the Vader is a better board.

It all depends what you are looking for.
