I think it would be best if the board manufactors developed Twintip Raceboards that works just as good as the Directionals. If we want Kite Racing to be a competition where everybody can participate, we have to get some boards that are easy to ride. Here in Denmark we are trying to make different changes on Twintips. First we have made som cut outs and "spoilers".
Now we have made some more adjustments:
2 "centerfinnes". They give a better upwind proformance. This is not a new idea, but it works very good.
"Vario Pads". Going upwind or downwind You have to twist a lot in the straps to get an optimal position. Therefore we are now trying to make the pads twist.
You can see the changes I have made here:
