I admire the foils (have flown a couple) and have great respect for Armin, but definitely sticking with inflatables. Just my preference

Hi Dave.

Toeside Tommy is a Blade dealer and in OBX. Tell him Bob from Wisconsin sent you.

I would assume he has the Fat Lady. If he doesn't have one, let me know as I might be willing to send mine to you to demo for a short time.

What ever kite you get - make sure you use a 60cm bar and the magic Q-powerline Pro lines... the combination will get the best turn speed results :)

Stop by Radikal in Rodanthe and demo Nobile T5 kite.
You might be suprised how smooth, stable and quick it is.

Thanks Bob, I'll definitely give Tommy a call. Always knew about him, but never met him (I taught at Waves Village resort for a season, but mostly ride quieter spots nowadays). Happy to check out the Nobile T5 at Radikal as well. Notice that RWS (Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo) is getting to be quite the kiting hub these days. Good luck to Radikal; hope you guys do well. Many days spent on my ski giving lessons there

I had a Zephyr and before that a Best 16m, before that a Fluid Torque 14m (ultra flat) and before a Cabrinha 19.5m and before a F-One Mach 2 while after the Zephyr I got a griffin Argo 17m then a Zeeko Notus 17m, and now I ride a BoardRiding Maui Cloud, this last beats them all by far, if that may help. Don't know about others. The Cloud is very rapid turning, higly stable and powerfull but forget about it if you've got prejudice against strutless kites :naughty:
