it is not about flexibility. I can take off the board on the rail as fast as on the handle.
Just the handle offers way more options, including the t-handle tricks!

Alright :-) I guess its time to get the first prototypes done.
Lets see how long it takes Frederik.

I am 100% positive this will be a great handle.

@ Tobi:

The airstyle kit could consist of:

- Custom Fiberglass Handle incl. two kind of tapes + screws
- North micro loop kit incl. North ironheart /parts (for all bars)
- Flysurfer Grabrails 3 pieces set + glue
- Flysurfer or Concept X 2012 Straps/Pads
- Line extensions 7m (25+7 = 32)

What do you think?

Have you ever spoke with North regards the need for the equipment we need. Dyno circa 2011 model and ironheart bars?

I think they are missing an opportunity!

Of course!
Still trying to convince!
Which is a shame anyway, since we speak about the main attraction of the sport...jumping and flying!

I guess there is only 3 companies at the moment that it would make sense for to be contacted/convinced by us to come up with an Airstyle line:

- North (because of the Dyno 2011 and the bars/microloops)
- Naish (because of the Draft Kites)
- Flysurfer (because of the Radical 2011 S R3, the Straps and Grabrails)

Ideally they should offer at least an Airstyle Kit:

- T-Handle
- Grabrails
- Universal Microloop Kit for all brands's bars
- Airstyle oversize straps
- Line extensions

I guess it would be very little effort for those companies to come up with an Airstyle Kit.

Maybe in the future own Airstyle boards (right aspect ratio weight/length and ability to hold edge) and Airstyle Kites (Hangtime, smooth control) would make sense too.
