I ride a 12.8 Cabrinha Black Tip which is great
and recently destroyed a 14.9 RRD in 6 foot surf
The cost to repair this kite seemed too high so I've just ordered
a new 17.3 GK - I had a demo on one last night and it is a machine!

I recently got a new board - 136 Stonker which is the fastest board I've ridden and it gets me pumped to hit the water just looking at it.

2001 Wipika Airblast 6, 8, 11, 16- all have great upwind,
2002 sent all back and got replacements because of mylar delamination
2003 Flysurfer Titan 12.5- great relauncher, slow turning though and bridle is high maintenance, incredible airtime and light wind performance.
2004 have tried a lot of new kites to replace Airblast, all of them high aspect as upwind is most important factor for me wanting to stay upwind in big waves with lots of sideshore current, all the new kites (except Titan and Naish x10) turn faster than Airblast but only x10 has better upwind and only just a fraction.

Boards- first two directionals including a 8ft. naish skypirate for really light wind, it works, then f-one 174 slices through chop and best upwind performance of anything I have tried. Currently on 142 wavetray- this is the most responsive board to rear foot pressure I have ever ridden, for 2004 I am looking for something with more fins I think. Rode a 110 wavetray just for fun lastweek, it was like riding a finless trick ski if anyone remembers those, a blast but need a steady wind to stay up.
