Day 1 here in dakhla for the north dealer week.
Can't share any pics or video as yet..or the names of the models of kite etc however I can say how impressive all the new kit is!
Simple plain graphics..super clean looking.
Awesome new bar system
All the range is extremely solid.

I was so stacked on the 7m's that I tried today ..huge!!

Day 3 and another 45knot day tbh it's been too windy here and can't really test the kit properly as just so overpowered all the time.

Having said that i sure know that there big air freeride kites boost huge!!

Rest was perfect for the foil! :D

Had a terrible first 30 mins unable to get going at all and almost went home before realising the kite was trimmed all the way :roll: :roll: :roll: Sorted that out and I was over-powered if anything 8-)

I can now go in both directions but can only get downwind (and even then only barely) with a regular stance. Ended up way out and it took ages to body drag back to the beach. Got some decent length runs both ways though - golf clubhouse to pink bay was the best :) You don't realise how fast your going on the foil (except when crashing!), it really makes rest feel small!

Just about enough wind for a TT by the end and there were two going out as I left..

Hoping to be back at rest this afternoon - anyone else coming out to play if the wind shows up?

Defo not enough for a TT but another epic session on the foil 8-) Wind picked up just enough as I got there and kept up until I was well worn out. Unfortunately I couldn't re-launch the kite when it did drop and a lifeguard paddled out as I was drifting/kicking towards the shore :oops: most embarrassing and was soon on the beach unaided but good to see they are so on the ball.

Figured out going downwind and sorted out the poo stance - guess gybes are next but feel a million miles away from even attempting one at the moment..

So chuffed with the foil though - thought it was an extravagance even within an already very expensive sport but it's worth every penny. So much fun in conditions not even close to being rideable without one - anyone who is willing to push themselves through the learning process should definitely get one!

Rest to myself again this evening but was very over-powered with the 12 and the foil - didn't feel like much in the car park but it must have been nearing 20mph on the water. Certainly didn't tally with the aber guage which seems to have gone a bit funny from 4ish at least.

Fun session anyway but was then pissed off to find that some scumbag had gone through my bag and stolen my fake crocs and my screwdriver :evil: :evil: :evil: Not much monetary value to either but it was a major pain getting the board / foil into the car in one piece. At least I use an aquapac otherwise it could have been much worse..
