the FONE´s ? 215 and 230) we used to think a 215 was for high winds...
then we now ride 1.4 m wakeboards... then we go back to longboards !
except that like all other product cycles in kitesurfing this is much

technical and better than just flying your kite on the beach... you can
actually get some good wave riding done (long board style) with a kite
if the wind direction is right... jumps were tough because i didnt have
any straps... thats why i want to make a special kitelongboard...
I just bought a foam block (8"10) today and will shape it tomorrow...
then have it glassed... maybe 4 thruster type fins (2 on each rail!)
flat rocker... dome deck to have volume yet thin rails...
ill send pictures when its done...
