Been in Europe with big kites (due to the low wind and no waves) and am getting back into this old school stuff. Here are some pics you might enjoy.
That's with the Peter Lynn Fury Lite 15 and 17 which have turned out to be great for this kind of stuff.
So when we gonna start the Airstyle world tour? :D

Can you drill holes in another bar to add the micro loop? I know the north bar has the holes counter sunk. I'd like to use my switch bar with drilled holes, then replace the CL with a North. Any foreseeable problems? Im riding Ozone edges now after a couple years on rebels.

You let it touch the concrete! :o The rare 18m Dyno must be cherished! Toby has nearly kited the 18m Dyno into extinction. You should have put a pillow underneath it :D

Smooth concrete is ok...but don't make it wet!

You can drill holes...check the Airsyle forum for the microloop topic, someone did it.
It might weaken the bar though...

I have some board options. My weight is 94kg. I know Toby rides the S, but would say he has better conditions than my local spot. So would have to work from 12mph +.

then get a big bigger with that lighter wind! Still a good board and easy to take off and back on again.
