The Glider had been out for a few weeks, so I guess it was inevitable!

Found some notes I made... the old Flyradical3 139x42 was 3.9kg with pads etc... so the Z isn't really that heavy - just feels it for some odd reason.

Got a ride on it today... but wrong harness, wrong kite for the conditions.

Been a couple of months since I rode such a small board, but initial impressions are... very smooth ride, pads are great but almost a little too small, pops easily, carves beautifully.

Next time hopefully I'll get the gear selection right :-?

Look exactly as some NBL boards a few years back (Aboards craft their boards there).

That doesn't mean they aren't any good, just mentioning nothing new (only graphics, accessories),

Cheers

The Z-series 2014 has improved a lot since the beginning of the line.

500 grams lighter, a better feel and control in the water and quality that lasts.

Seems to me you have seen only photos with these boards and never been to a real riding :)
In this summer i was choosing new board for myself, I tested boards of various brands. And stoped my choise on X-series board 2014.
I was satisfied with it and surprised, because It is great board and has new even better options as my friend's X-2011, which i have tested.
