Toby where can I find someone like that to launch my kite?

Hey what board are you actually using. ??


easy: become a good Airstyler, and you will have enough groupies to choose from :naughty:

I am using a 2012 Flyboard Radical S 128x38

For a board it is important to have a good grip when edging to control the kite's power (The smaller the harder you can edge).
Then straps which can be huge, and still be comfortable (Flyboard straps are excellent).
OK weight, not too light, not too heavy.
And a good handle. The DVD explains what is important for it.

I presume you had that handle fabricated yourself?

Yes, aluminium handle.
Broke already two, due to the forces on it.

Unfortunately the bluray gets delayed, since we had few changes to make to ensure even higher quality.
I expect it to be ready end of May. Sorry for that.

Hey Toby like your opening philosophy and I tend to agree. Airstyle explores aspects that are idiosyncratic to kitesurfing.

it is ok that competitions go to other directions.
It is not ok that one style got taken out totally...which is the main idea and attraction of the sport.

Too bad that Eric from KPWT was such a stubborn...he would have been smart, making it an Airstyle Tour, just hooked. He would have had great success with it.

If you take King of Air contest and only change the ratio from 75/25 to 50/50 we would be going somewhere. That way not only you could score big with huge air but also with floaty jumps with tricks and last but not the least some super complicated wake arm twisters. Judging would hard though but doable. Most importantly you can sell something like this to the public.
