Custom boards

Anyone know of anybody making custom kite surf boards or windsurf boards in the UK anymore or is it a dead art? Not twin tips just directionals/surfboards.

Re: Naish Shockwave 1 in a 9m

Just a bit of a bump,do any current kiters know of any ex kiters who might have one of these kicking about.
I,ve managed to get hold of one which was cool and just the job.Would like a couple if I can get hold of them as I kite a lot.
Thanks

Hi

Does anyone know of or are using a stopper on a single line depower that works as well as the now common double line that goes thru the stopper like the Naish Smartloop.

Thanks and regards
