Busted? Come on, it is a Flyboards video about Radical4 by Flyboards team riders.

See the title:
Quote:
Cable Kite - The Flyboards Wake Project


Is it sooo hard to read credits, RRD is mentioned there:

Quote:
Riders:
Dylan van der Meij, supported by Flysurfer / Flyboards
Bram Bast, supported by RRD / Flyboards / Pro-Limit / Shisha
Shot & Edited:
Nick de Bruijn - Lifely

As a matter of fact, nothing comes closer to the constant pull of a cable as a large foil


Apart from a boat.

Its not wakestyle because it has no obstacles/sliders???????????

Should be comparing the vid to a boat not cable :roll:

Just saying :naughty:

So are you saying that the title of THIS topic is not missleading? This is a nice clip showing the wakestyle performance of flyboards we all understood that. But using it to prove that foils can perform pretty well in wakestyle (which might be true) as the initial poster did was at least a bad idea. It is obvious that the maker of this clip although he makes a credit for rrd would rather not show the rrd kite but he had to do it because he did not have enough scenes from the rider with the flysurfer (which he did not have any problem to show his flysurfer kite for more than a split of a second)

Sure, thread topic is misleading. But topic was set-up by Tone to troll people.

But taking a conclusion that foil kite maker demos their foil capabilities by actually using other brand kite is non-sense. I just wanted to interrupt your "busted party".

Video was uploaded by foil kite brand account for their board brand but they introduced riders with their all supporters. I believe that Flyboards also supports Toby and he rides North kites. Or not. Toby just likes Flyboards Radical and uses it.

The title of the thread was misleading, I am aware of that.

This was meant to be a light hearted troll as it was a Monday and work was slow. It wasn't intended to wind people up.

I thought the film was good as it happens and Jay, wake style doesn't have to include sliders and kickers to be valid as wake style. As someone has also pointed out, it was a Flyboards promo not a Flysurfer promo - though one or two of the riders were on foils.

Anyway, its getting warmer and the evenings lighter. Less trolling more kiting.

14C today :)

That was the point I was making! Someone else commented on the fact that there were no kickers or sliders in the video so how can it be wakestyle :roll:
