Or did they changed the name?


Twisted was the work of Rob Whittail and The Windzup crew. The windzup crew has moved on to another project, and Rob is focusing on Kites with Ozone.

There is a rumor they may try and make boards next year.

The 3boards are a pefect shape for a snowkiteboard, I have lots of boards for resort and big mountain pow riding, so having a board with this shape that just kills powder and makes kiting easier is sweet.

If you are only going to have one board to snowboard and snowkite with on groomed trails its not the 3b.

REVERSE board is the best for me! There is so much you can do with it - for example such nice kiteloop as on this great shot. :)

I've been looking for a board that would do both, kiting and park riding. Looks like the Aboards Reverse 161 may be it!

This board may have helped me the other day at Skyline. Winds were 7-12 MPH, and though my Fat Lady worked like a charm, the powder was so deep, my current 159 board wasn't enough to float me through it. Just barely made it back upwind and never "really" got to ride.

Impressive! Hope someday also I will be able to do something like this with my REVERSE.
