Re: Ozone and Flysurfer fanboys, tell me why...

I have been satisfied with both brands. Don't really feel one is better than the other. Flysurfer could learn something from Ozone about making bars.

Have a look here: https://project.kiteboat.com/gallery/

Interesting to see that Maxime Norcher has switched to the FS Sonic Race, but apparently isn't sponsored by FS.

Re: Foldable Mast Concept

A telescopic mast This exists on some weird type of sit-down wake foil. The mast slides through the board and the plate mount is secured on top. https://www.instagram.com/p/BWvDaYSFJMf/ Upside down riding can be done with a strapless board.

Interesting that North, as well as Axis, have abandoned tuttle in favour of plate mount.

Re: Specially skis and snowboards for snowkiting ("CustomSkis" from Russia)

Beautiful skis!

One problem I have had with DH skis, is that the base can melt/crack. I happens after prolonged use at high speed on hard ice. Do you use any kind of speciel base material to avoid this?
