Re: Airush 2015 thread, new season, info, reviews, announcements

Hey Mike B, here in Gokova with the GF, who has nailed her board starts and with a week of holiday left all is looking rosey, future kitesurfing holidays together are a done deal :) For me, weighing in at 76KG, currently on a wave 9m and Lithium 12m (2013), with the 12m the daily weapon of choice fo...

Re: Airush 2013 - the new thread...

Sorry that first question is rather dumb, I'm rather frazzled after a 3.5 hour session on the Lithium today! I would imagine it will vary from retailer to retailer, but perhaps list Airush 2014 sometime September? No more silly questions, beer then bed.....

Re: Tiree trip

Now that is a great view for a bacon butty!

Thinking of heading up Tiree early September (hopefully the midges wil have f****d off by then). The island just looks beautiful.

I will need to myself a 7, hopefully this will not be too big!

Re: Anywhere to Kiteboard near Durham?

Hey Salty,

You may have more luck posting a thread on the North-East specific forum (if you haven't already come across it).

Hope you get something sorted.

Being ignorant of such kites I wonder how it compares with the Iikes of the zephr and larger ozone edges.
