Hehe - not bad - terrabit...

Well the only thing I like until now about Japan is the Japanese girls.
But maybe that will change once I have visited it?

The lack of palmtrees might be an issue ;-)

I just finished my first tests with the grabrails.

After Toby said I should go training due to the lack of water and wind here, I tried to train throws, flips, passes etc.... :-)

Well, my custom modifications for the grabrail are not yet what I expect them to be.

It offers more hold because of the negative 17,5% angle, but because it leaves quite some space free till the edge it is not a perfect fit to your hand when catching the board from a flip etc.

That means I will have to produce a grabrail myself from foam rubber that combines the positive features of both grabrails:

- Modified: Perfect angle inside wall (no chance of the board slipping out of your hand), perfectly fitted and glued to the staired edge of the Radical
- Original: Starts right at the edge of the board - feels more comfortable in your hand when you grab it

Well, its gonna be a bit of work, but due to the lack of kiteable water and wind here (its just too cold :-) ) I am left with material tests only here anyhow :-)
