  • Firewire is true that is better than a pu board?

    HALLO GUYS, i've buy a sweetpotato 5.4 in futur shape for light days windy, i play kite only strapless, i've used my new sweet potato for 5 times and i've just broken it, on the top i've a great depression with broke for 15 cm., on the rail i've another broken for compression about 7-9 cm., on the top is possible to see , not one but a lot of cediment....., i know that this is a surfboard and not a kiteboard, but now , before that i buy the sweetpotato, i use only a surfboard in PU, and its are a big compression, but don't broken, or better, they broken more difficoult than a firewire surfboard, about my experience........, the broken in sweetpotato are only for use not for rocks or other accident.
    my friend have buy a sweetpotato 5.2 in rapid fire and now about 2 months later , broken in 2 parts.........., we are very stressed for this......, because in italy the firewire boards are very expensive and now i've a broken board...............
    there are other guys that use the sweetpotato or other models surfboard firewire for play kite? do you have this problem?
    i've buy , and now i'm waiting that its arriving, 2 firewire kiteboards, the KP1, and the KHF 5.10, i'll want to know if the firewire kiteboards are strong or not, if are goods boards ? this question is for all and for the firewire staff.
    guys do you have problems with the kiteboards?
    and for the firewire staff, is possible to use warranty ?
    ok, i wait the answers if its possible....., and excusme for the problems, and for my english

    Hi there,
    The strength of the Firewire Surfboards really depend on your own personal riding style.
    Some guys are more heavy on their feet and this cause's the board to disintegrate faster some will make the board last as they really know how to nurse the board.
    This is why we came up with the Kite line up of the Firewire boards .
    These boards are truly built to last and have the magic feel you feel in the rest of the surf fleet from Firewire
    You have my word you will not break the Firewire boards that are in the kite line up. (just make sure you fix any Dings you get)
    I have been on the same board for over a year jumping it 300 days a year in windy conditions
    Enjoy your new kite construction boards
    You will not be disappointed
    Regards
    Felix

      Felix hit it...unfortunately this is why we don't push ridin the surfboards for kiting because the strength for kiting is just not there. You would need to add some carbon or additional strength, but why when we have the kite models built to last who knows how long?
