PODCAST #136

Happy New Year! After taking some time off for the holidays, our weekly podcasts are now back in action……

Pat Rawson's legacy extends throughout 26 countries worldwide and spans more than 30 years. From champion Tom Carroll to big wave extremist Ryan Rawson, the list of pro surfers riding Rawson-shaped boards is proof of the respect that he has earned as a premium shaper in the surf industry. In 2008, Pat was brought in by Liquid Force to lead the design efforts for their new directional boards. Pat joins host Ryan Riccitelli on this week’s The Kiteboarder and ASNews.net podcast to talk about the development of the Liquid Force directional kiteboards and the 2009 line up as well as new construction techniques and how they affect the performance and durability of the boards.

Due to travel schedules, this week’s interview will be prerecorded but you can still ask your questions here! Please post no later than 4p Thursday, January 8, 5p PST. The podcast interview will be posted online Friday evening at http://www.kiteforum.tv, http://www.asnews.net and of course, http://www.thekiteboarder.com.

Upcoming interviews:

-Next week: KB4C Snowkite event/Montana Snowkite Rodeo
-Fone’s Raphael Salles
-Slingshot Designer Tony Logosz
-Peter Stiewe of Best Kiteboarding unveils the new Kahoona
-Mat Pendle on new innovations for 2009
-South Padre event Memorial Day weekend

can you comment on the construction tuffness of your boards, Have recently had alot of issues with the LF Quadd 6 2'', the construction is way too light, top deck foot compression and bottom delamination. While the board shape rocks I think Liquid Force are not helping your name by using a sub standard layups on your boards.

Drew, I'm sorry but your question came after the deadline and the interview was conducted this morning. Pat does took about the new construction and EVF tech so i still believe the podcast is worth a listen for you:-)
