Got to give them credit for a sweet board program...
Like the Arcade for bindings, the wakeSkate, the Skater for bumpandjump, the 6.1 global for DTL, the fish for light wind, and would even like to have a raceboard 70cm wide for racing in the summer.

Shit... That alot off gear. :D

Thanks for the pic's phil now i dont have to wait for the official launch next week.

Board line up looks interesting. I'd like to give the Alaia a go

Park looks more "C" than 2011. wing tips look wider and more forward at LE, i'll be interested to see how the "Superior low end performance" is???

The best thing is they have dropped the Y on the SLE bar..


The Y in the front lines was the source of many relaunch problems.
IT made self landing more difficult.
I will be glad to see it GONE. Thank you. WW :D

Looks like the Torch bar has a protective sleeve on the silver depower trim line?

Hope not - won't be able to see when it's worn and might snap without warning :-(

There what is?

Lines don't snap just because of frictional wear, the condition of the line deteriorates due to the stress put onto it from the kite, the action of sand that gets under the PU lining (ok this is frictional wear I suppose) and the constant immersion in salt water.

Like I said, I prefer to see the condition of my lines - I wax my lines so don't really suffer problems with them breaking.

Rope inside plastic tube does deteriorate, my chicken loop snapped the other-day the plastic tube looked fine at the beginning of the session but little did I know the rope had disintegrated due to trapped sand.
