First week of March I went with a friend to El Gouna (Egypt).
I had my new toys with me (Thruster 10, 14 m2 and nano 12m2 to test, Skywalker comp 131x40)
We had a great time.
Special thx to the people of http://www.kiteboarding-club.de
We were staying at the Rhiana in resort (all incl)
Hope you like the pictures :bye:

the 12 Thruster is a dream, I love mine, stable, good low and high end, boost and float superb and built to withstand abuse infact its probably the best constucted kite on the market at the moment, maybe flexi a close second.

Can't comment on the kites as I ride the new RRDs. But I do have the board Skywalker 131x40 cm, (2008) and that's a very nice board. I also have a Nobile 555 (135x40 cm). The Skywalker has a little thicker edges and these inverted rails (it's the Pro Rider I got). The Skywalker just outperforms the Nobile as soon as there is a little chop as it rides much more smooth.
It's possilbe the that Nobile with its thinner edges might be better on really flat water (?), I don't know as I rarely experience totally flat water. Just know that the Skywalker is perfect for me!
My Nobile is for sale :wink:

Hey, anyone wanna buy my Lightwind Skywalker Pro dimitri 135x48 cm (2007)? Send me a PM.
