  • Have a look at these...

    These look like they might give Firewire a good run for their money. Incredible strength to weight from what the Kiters are saying about them.

    The other board of interest I stumbled across is from Slingshot kiteboarding, they seem to have jumped on the Vangaurd copy thing pretty damn quickly?

    I haven't seen a libtech myself but have heard that they are stiff and heavy. The tech and materials used sound really impressive and innovative, but that doesn't mean much if the ride and feel isn't up to scratch.

      Interesting to here some real life feedback, and amazing how different it is to the "You Tube Hype" that I was watching.

      Anyone tried surfing the Libtech or Slingshot boards?

        The cut off nose shape has been around in wakeboards and kiteboards forever...I think that is where Tomo got the inspiration.

          I ride a gnu snowboard and lib have some whack ideas. They might be a bit off ATM but they will get it right . A true passionate company well until they got bought out by Quicksilver.

            I ordered a Lib-Tech shortly after they went public. I used it for all of 3 sessions before calling it a day on the technology. It feels like plastic in the hand and surfs stiff as hell. Sure, it's pretty much bulletproof, but so is steel.

              First time I have heard about this technology. The video on the website explaining it is horrible with the two yahoo's faking ridiculous accents. It was enough to turn me off of giving these boards a second glance. I can't believe they expect sell boards with that kind of marketing.
