Are you involved with the company? Interesting that you're resuscitating some threads from the distant past. What's your angle?

Dear loco, I was in the same situation when I was looking for a splitkiteboard, because I was fuckin angry everytime I payied extra money for traveling. I found perfect product in kitelement resolve splitboard, I met the guys and become very good friend with them. They provided me excelent support and now when they launched new eshop, I support them. My aim is to help people looking for split boards like I was, because there was very limited offer on the market. I have 0 money interest, my passion is kiting and I work in totaly different field,believe me :)
So for everybody who is looking for split kiteboard, buy one and screw the airline companies,because they are screwing us!
Thats the way she goes :) aren't you owner of some airline company loco? :)

Hi kiteboy,

I'm working on starting a new airline which transports kiteboarding equipment for free but charges extra for golf clubs (unless they are in a fake bag to look like kiteboarding equipment). I envision a day when old nerdy golfers buy fake piercings and tats and dress grungy to pretend they are kiteboarders in order to sneak a set of clubs on my airline. I'm a couple hundred million dollars short of starting up so for now I pay others to fly me to great kiting destinations, and I feel the same pain as many others who fly to kite. I'm very into the whole split / folding board concept and also want to travel the world with minimal equipment and have maximal fun.

I only raised the question because you came out of nowhere, resurrected old dead threads and started promoting a product as the best, with no actual reviews of similar products. It somewhat resembles an advertisement in a thin disguise. That's not a problem as there are a lot of poorly disguised advertisements all over this forum; I was more curious if you were the owner of the company or just a guy promoting them for whatever reason you may have.

Glad you have something you like and I'd be interested in reading any specifics or comparisons you have in addition to just saying its the best.

Have fun

@John, Here is another interesting concept as a race or directional,
but the most recent one is from XtremeBigAir, the "Newind Split Kite Board"

Reviving old threads is great. This is something I had on my mind but didn't want to search through 500 pages. Also now we have new info!

Am looking for split surf boards for kiting in the 6' range (not 5'9"). I actually wish this was a technology that was portable to any board or computer shape on has an interest in. I know the Pope bisect technology for longboards and SUPs is available as parts (I believe). I guess implementing a split board from an already manufactured surfboard may be very challenging (e.g. it needs to be water-tight etc).
