I live inland and generally have to fly to the coast to get a decent session in, so for me these split boards are magic when it comes to dealing with airline luggage restrictions.
I've had a Progeni Mutare split board for the last few years and am stoked to see other manufacturers embrace the concept.
First Flysurfer with their flysplit and now Nobile, and they both look very similar to the Progeni board.
I just wonder why they're only becoming available now... maybe the original Progeni patent has expired since its introduction in 2009?
My next kites will probably strutless, something like the Cloud 8 and Cloud 12. And then I can get a compact pump like the K-Pump K40...
