The 13M,Ozone Instinct 2005, got mine in 2006 , it was
my first LEI ; before that it was Ram Air's.
Gave it to a friend in SD and he & his 9-year old son learned
on it after my legs ran away in 07 ; they used the rest of that kite All-up.
It was a "Good" kite !!

So Billie,

I've thought it over and have decided to award you "sacred cow" status...

Sure you're offensive little pick, with a chest pounding persona, just the sort I love to fuck with...

had you all your parts I would, but you don't , so I'm just going to give you a pass...

I'd like to wish you all the strength in the world and feel kite surfing must be God's gift to you, maybe as compensation?, perhaps just as a happy happenstance? ..but something that gets you out in Nature...

That's a connection that could change the entire world...a good thing

So rock on dude, you've got a free pass from me....least I can do all things considered..


Best Regards
fokiten

And --Fokiten-- is too Lame to realize that he's getting Laughed at ; by
posting on a forum filled with adrenaline junkies, when he Lost the nerve to
actually kite-board for himself !!
UAH -- No insult to the chickens intended .

I was sponsored an Ozone Para-glider a month ago, to do a stunt that should
bring a smile to viewers ; first thing i did with it, was to jump off a mountain with
the machine, just to make sure It and Me could still Fly. -------------------WE Can !!!!
If i couldn't fly because i got Scared, i wouldn't post on the HG & PG forum.

I read Billie, but wasn't certain you were referring to me on the first on, so i toss a bit
of chum in the water, to see if the snakes appear ; ---------------------------------They Did !!
Billie was spelled the same way in each.

ON "Classic Collectables" , can i nominate --Fokiten-- as such ?

Because to me ,he was a cult classic Boar, that Nobody would wanna endeavor to make any
more ; and should be left as a reminder of just how cynical a human will get once he let's his
passions escape ! Or What-ever excuse Fo uses these days, to rationalize his giving up kiting?

Ha ha ha! I had the first Naish Helix in 2007. You're right it should be a collectible because of its shape and also of its failure as a shape, but I had such a bad experience with my first Helix that I don't want another one... Ever! :)

I have a 2001 7M Naish AR 3.5 that has never been unwrapped, in the bag - still tied together with the ribbon of kite material they used back then.

Any takers?

Ok , since EH is no longer in business my vote goes for the Ovandos ... I love my 9m so much I just purchased another one for the future ... Got if cheap and almost new , saw it in a shop last year and waited since then for the price to drop :naughty:

When i started back in 99,all the kit i used was garbage,compared to now.

Before 99,back in the 80's in windsurfing,its the same story.

In the early days in watersport the gear was shit.
