The best board I ever tried is what I have now. But if I ever try a better board then I'll replace what I have now with the better board.

Still, just like the Wipika Airblast was a huge gamechanger in terms of speed and windrange and jumping ability and everything in 2001, the Wipika Olry was too IMO.

The airblast was the first kite that felt modern, you could ride it today. The Waroo 2 was the first bridled kite that felt 'right' ... we are spoilt today.

My fav board was the Naish Stubbie 115cm. Man, that thing was so much fun. Bit crap for jumping, but just so much fun to ride.

So true - the Waroo was the very first bridled kite that really kicked ass bigtime, and was in full balance, it was a delight in every way :thumb:

Boards are more difficult, as a lot of personal liking...

I loved the small Brunotti Lord Of Hellfire when it came - you could ride with LOADS of power, and jump insanely high :naughty:

Completely opposite to the wide boards used today :wink:

Fanatic joyrider 118x38 bought it 2004, had a lot of boards since then but this is still my preferd one. Flat, and light, very fast and snappy because of the rounded outline. Found a survior in Denmark so now i have 2 :)
