Does anyone have more sizing information or general descriptions of the new directional boards?
I saw this
in the bay area kite forum;
5-6 Angry Swallow
5-6 & 5-8 Celeritas
5-0 Ankle Biter
4-8 Alien Twister
Pricing and photos by July 14th...if you cant wait, come on by our shop to see first hand the directional lineup......
Looks like at least 4 new shapes in there to play with. So, without the write-ups...here is my guess. I'm sure I'm wrong. Pictures if you follow the links...
* The 2015 Ankle Biter 5'0
looks like the 2014 SP WVS
, but without the inserts. (which is cool. nice look)
* I'm not sure what the Alien Twister
4'8" is...looks just like the Ankle Biter but with a flat nose and fish tail. I suppose it has a different rocker/bottom shape.
looks the same with updated graphics.
board below must be the Screamer or Angry Swallow...it doesn't look Angry...it looks to me like it would eat up big wind and waves so I am guessing it is the Screamer.
Paintings of naked girls on surf boards is always a plus.
I like the way they did it. It's not in your face, but if you care enough to look closely at the board... "hello, hottie!"
It's my first time paying attention to the FCS II fin system. (there's a lot of info in this
link) As long as the fins don't come out in a wreck (and it sounds like they've tested it) that is a pretty cool system. It would be really nice to easily try out fin combinations while your kite is in the air! Just pop off the rear fins or rearrange the T-Rex fins one handed w/o tools. Perfect for kiting. Sweet.
