I ordered my by the end of 2011 without even being released yet... I just don't get it... it seems like there was a shipment to Europe stock a month ago...

Are there any riders in european countries (not sponsored) who got the LTD69 in the last past 3-4 weeks?
Thanks for reply!

I am on the waiting list. This is madness. I just heard that the boards might be available for "public" in July.
I was a number 3 in the Polish Championship 2011. Still have no board. The first two Polish cup events in May.
From a sporty point of view. If I am a lucky guy and get the board a week before the competition how I might be competitive to a North team rider who got this board in February and ride it every second day? It is not like it should be :(
I have given my 2011 board in March to a kiteracing club for free to help teenegers familiarise with a racing board believing my board would reach me in days (I was said so). At present I have brought to a halt my racing due to a lack of a board.

Polish Kitebording Association agreed that in the Polish Cup 2012 the IKA box rules apply except the amount limit and we changed the minimum weight to 5,0kg to avoid expensive space custom boards here.
It means all boards are allowed to compete if they are within 190x70cm, above 5.0kg, and fins are shorter than 50cm. STOP.
Simple from rider's point of view. How does it look from manufacturer's or event organiser's ones?

Lower weight limit is kind of odd. Don't think you could build a 85L 70cm width board at 5Kg.

Are you serious? I was hoping to get it end of April. I finally found someone to buy my ltd69 2011.
But if it's true what you say...I'm gonna keep it for a while longer and order next years model!
Race competitions start in two weeks time, damn it!
