I have an AirRush Pickle fork that I think is kinda special. It rides like the dog it was, but I never had a winterstick (first snowboard) either so as bad of rap they have i'm keeping mine. :thumb:

The firsts of everything? All North stuff :lol:

There was a brand many years back (maybe about 2003 or 2004?) that came up with a through the bar inside a tube flagging line but it never caught on.

Gaastra made a kite with double bladders in the LE so there was a stiffening rib between them.

Aaron's handlepass ring that got banned.

I remember those because I had come up with the same ideas just before they appeared. Necessity being the mother of invention kinda coincidence.

First Naish 4 line kite the AR5.

First bow kite Takoon Nova?

I held on to my x10 for the longest time thinking that I would enjoy taking it back out, but i realized that is not for me. Thought I think there are shapes that would be great to have in a kite museum so to speak, I would not want to be the one to take care of it. It was great back then, but cannot at all compare to the current gear.

The real deal crome hellfish, unpopped, undelamed, that would be the absolute sweetest.

I know someone on here who bought a pretty minty naish virus from Lou himself. Think it might be signed! Thats a nice piece of kit to be preserved.

Hey, that the kite Simon gave you for being such a doubter about the new technology? :) And if I recall, you loved it....probably until it started to disintegrate on you!

I have 2 naish virus protos that were handed down from Lou to a friend of mine and then I got them. There is hand written notes on them about the type of seam etc. One is red and the other grey. No size just medium and small I think. I think these are pretty rare indeed. I have a cquad 4.2as well. ;)
