Easy Simon, why so defensive? Nobody is accusing anyone here. I was just giving props to the smart guys at Best Kiteboarding. Quite the designers. :thumb:

A fast board is of course important.


Mark, thx for the review.
Some more advice : how do you know whether a given board (I ride both TT and mutant) is fast (other than by trying it out, which is not always possible).


Look for a board with a flatter rocker curve and thin rails. Flatter rocker is the number one thing; hard rails will be a little faster and soft rails will offer a little more control, but in any case for a fast board you want those rails thin.

gk, no you've got me all wrong, i'm really happy to see someone from another kite company endorse the product, wait until you see the bar, you'll be amazed at how simple and reliable that is.

Always happy to help out. Matter of fact, tell Peter if he has any questions on how any of it works he can give me a call. I'll keep it on the down-low.
Cheers,
GK

I am shocked, shocked! at the suggestion that one kite company might have reused ideas pioneered by another kite company.

In the history of kitesurfing, this has got to be a new low. Up till now, each and every kite was designed in a vaccum, without any influence of the kites that preceeded them...

Mark or Simon

Can you comment on the valves used on the Waroo? Are they ball valves, flap valves, no valves?

Do they have the same size valves on all the struts?

Thanks

GK and Best kites are both made in the same factory. How hard would it be for Best to ask the factory to make a just like the Sonic, but with a few cosmetic changes? I'm just asking...

Or maybe they put a team of private detectives on the case and bought sattelite imagery of the testing of the sonic!
