I agree that it's good that they aren't flogging equipment for sales. But if they don't want to change the shape surely they could try to make the board a little lighter and a little stronger. Maybe put in inline inserts for rail riders?
I could understand "little lighter", but there are many other boards lighter out there. The Pop has just the perfect weight for me, it has that "swing" feel. The flow looks to be similar too.
Little stronger? I have not seen a stronger (more durable) board yet. I ride mine on stones and rocks and the base is still ok, unbelievable.
The inline inserts is a good idea.
Yea seriously. This base is crazy. They get it made at the same factory as Ronix wakeboards, they have an ABS sidewall too. Have not seen a kiteboard with this level of durability yet, although rumor has it Airush is looking to do something similar this coming season.
As far as lighter goes, I have this carbon fiber lightwind board from Nomad Kiteboarding that I whip out when I really need lightwind ability. That's the only time I feel like the weight is a hindrance.
