WINDTOOLS 9 and 5.5

Picklefork - for sure

Wipika Classic

Flysurfer Speedair (the first kite with real depower)

C-Quad

and of course the first Naish QR which could not be released at all if under tension. It was a joke and they needed a few years to get it fixed.

Oh, nearly forgot the LE delaminations in the first years. ... very classic. G

Don't think I'd use the term "classic collectable". Maybe sentimental keeper.

My first twin tip, a Pete Nordby custom glass 5'11" (2002?). Never new Pete but certainly admired his pioneering spirit. Plan on incorporating the board into a small man-bar I'm building on the rear patio not far from the dock.
