ouch!!! I understand why it took so long time, it must be hard to design the North release... ahahah

I think I won't wait this F-One release will be available, I will buy directly a North chicken loop for my Bandit, at least I'm sure this one work perfectly...

Have heard some comments that, while they are gorgeous and bomber and surf great, the older SIGNATURE surfboard models tended to be quite SLOW to get up on plane...especially light wind..that maybe there is alot of water tension in the tail of the board...can anybody comment on this? Will these new signatures for 2014 have DOUBLE concave deck or, like what they SAY for the Mitu Pro series, will they just be one long single concave?

would be great to get somebody from F1 to answer a few questions here on the forum! VOlume of the new boards? will they be swallow or squash tail? single or double concave underneath? come on guys, we are saving our pesos here waiting for the goods, at least give us a little info pleaseeeeee.... :jump:

Hi guys ,

Are there any initail reviews/impressions of these away from the magazines yet ? Little nervous about there being so many changes given how incredible the B6 was.

Thx

Hi,

Can anyone explain to me why this QR is sooo long (reducing the bar throw/depower length).
But maybe the French have longer arms than "normal" kiters?
I don't get it...

Cheers

I don't get it really
They build AMAZING kites and boards, and then they take years to produce this piece of crap of CL
Even Switch has an incredibly better bar, it doesn't sound like mission impossible to copy it...

Yes, I noticed that too. It could be the angle of the picture. When you compare it to the north bar, it doesn't seem that much longer.

Yeah, if they don't come with a good price/trade-in for the new QR, I'm thinking I will just buy the Switch QR, which seems VERY simlar.

North CL is long because it is a super effective line swivel
the f-one doesn't look like it will rotate to untangle line...

good move , how long did that take!

long pice is good for unhooking so kite does not oversheet. Naish Torch for example you either ride with kite a bit depowered all the time or have to depower to unhook to stap oversheeting.
