Airstyle gear - Toby

Postby Westozzy » Thu Feb 20, 2014 2:27 am

Toby, You said this a while back...

trust me, I will make sure to keep Airstyle alive, to make sure people are able to enjoy what I enjoy, and also for the people just watching.
The feedback is amazing positive, so there is a need for such products. Also for the microhook!

If there are no option one day anymore, I will start offering my own products to keep it going.
There will be no Airstyle on my level and even higher without the right gear!





Toby we need to forget trying to find 2011 dynos, the micro loop iron hearts are all but gone. The race kites are getting more and more like race kites...

Where we at buddy with possible air style kits, what's does the future hold?? I know a number of guys wanting to pursue this style but.....

I won't leave you alone, don't worry!

I am testing bars and kites and this year you should have options again ;-)

Just needs a bit more time...next week I can already test a bar proto...

Are you working on gear through a current kite company, or coming up with your own branding?

Who cares who he's working with...or not? Why does that matter?

I just want some specialised air time gear couldn't give a stuff who makes it.

Ta Toby, I will watch this space...

I have a Dyno 18 2011 barely used and I've been thinking about the possibility of selling it. What will be its value today?

Fantastic idea, Toby I think everyone likes air-style it's just the comp's that are making things more technical (which is not a bad thing) It would be great to be able to keep Oldschool/Airstyle alive and kicking, with new and gear on the market this will keep it fresh.

Good luck :thumb:

Kind regards

Paul

if no company does what we need, I have to do my own brand.
But prefer to work with a company.

We will see, but I am sure something will come up.

In Germany you can get up to 700 Euro for a barely used Dyno 2011 18.0 ...

Toby, I was curious if you'd ever tried a Cabrinha Velocity 18m? I've been on the 11m and 13m and they are SUPER good at going big with STUPID hangtime! The 13m is probably my favorite kite in that size right now. I'd love to get your take on it... :wink:

It would also be very interesting to know what size kites you use in a given wind range. In your videos you look seriously powered up, although that might just be great technique :) I have found if I am too powered up it is has a negative effect since I cant hold my edge when sending the kite.
