Thought I posted that one last year, maybe not. hope to see more kites there this year. Got some winds with gusts of 49 on Wed, bring it on, SSW as well so perfect for the channel speed banks. I lost a bar and lines last Sunday walking back from low tide "gutted" :(

Congratulations and commiserations on your new PB top speed 2 sec 45.13 knots :-D
The new boards are working well unfortunately missing out the extra runs
but it shows a mans real character to stop speeding to help a mate out in trouble.

It was not that long ago you were asking for help on how to get over 40 knots well done the way you have been improving your going to challenge Davo for the UK top spot soon

The light wind missile

The inspiration came from kite race boards & windsurfing speed boards :-D
Image
Image
The board will be ridden flat, the small side fins are for stability there is a set of bigger fins that will give more lift, it will be interesting to see how the riders get on with it.
Image
Would love to ride it myself at Weymouth but I had a bad accident two years ago and had to have my shoulder rebuilt its getting better but unlikely to be strong enough to race again :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
(well that’s life)
Image
James would love you to have a go on it all I ask is you send me feedback :wink:
Davo and you both ride race boards but Gaz does not so he may need some help with it
But been the light weight should get it going first have a great time .
