kites are '11, slingshot & ozone.
'09 slingshot needing repair is a backup of sorts.
Build my own twin tip boards, to suit me, wood strip/epoxy glass -they last (no sliders).
Have a '05 jimmy lewis surfboard that is going strong (though not used for BIG air).
If you find a JL that suits, you can ride it as long as you care to.

My Q-Power line sets are f*&#@ 10 years old and still negligible wear and perfectly working. Used them a fair bit. Amazing.
My North lines either look like crap and/or snap after less than 2 years on the job.

Mainly 2010 Naish Helix, plus small 2012 Naish Bolt
2010 Naish Global 5.7
2012 Naish Global 5.5 (bought used, but like new)
2009 North X-Ride

I only buy new kites on sale or slightly used. Same with boards.

As I do not have the time to be as much on the water as I would like to I like to keep my current quicker for some time to have it fully dialed.

Just remember, i am still rocking the first Mystic Warrior 1 harness, replaced the spreader bar with that dynbar V3 a few years ago, the harness has hold up well, for being almost 6 years old it's in 7/10 condition

The equipment i actually own is really old, its a OR bronco 9m from 2003 and a naish X3 18m, also 03 and a full carbon f-one sk8 from 03 too i think, or maybe 04. Board was bought second hand at surf one in leucate, france. Goooood memories.

Ride the board sometimes, kites dont see the light of day much anymore unfortunately.

I mostly ride the schools stuff.

Anyone else bothered by the title? is, it should be is. Not important, just a thorn in my grammar-eye every time i see the frontpage.. :) sorry.

Fun thread :)

05 5m fuel
08 7m fuel
07 11m fuel

All my bars are cobbled together from parts and that cost me once when I forgot to put in the proper stopper knot on a steering leader line :)

I don't think the SS bars are special but I think the kites can take a lot of wear which is why I'm sticking with them. My 11m was like an old sock when I got it but it's still going... reinforced the LE a couple times.... so easy to pack it away it's so flimsy :)

I use my kites all 4 seasons.
