There are plenty of assym boards around. you just have to look closely. its usually pretty subtle.
Most light wind doors are assym.
My board is assym front to back.... aka its a mutant. A glorious wave riding wave boosting monster.
So of all the boards in kiteboarding the only ones I dislike are the doors. Just a personal preference thing....mutants I've not had huge success with...but I get the boosting..mainly from the amount of power you could hold with it.
I am not sure why a symmetrical board would be better for landings. Intuitively I get what you are saying and I don't disagree, but I'm sure it must be possible to design an asymmetrical board that is great for hot landings?
Ludmil: Thats kind of what I am thinking just looking at the board..I have not ridden it so it is not experiential...understand me correctly I've had a lot of great TT's and they were all symmetrical, so don't disagree...but I am figuring that we might be leaving some doors closed that could potentially take the handling to the next level. ...and I am super happy with my monarch too
