Brian, I would have PM'd you but for some reason it wont let me send PM's anymore.
I really fancy the jacknife 5'8 from the surfboard line up, how close are we to being able to order one in a kite construction? If it isn't going to happen, then any advice on how to strengthen the deck to give me the best chance of protecting it for kiting? not after any guarantees, but would a length of S glass on the top plus another patch for the front foot be Ok without affecting the ride/flex too much?
Any guidance would be appreciated.

How do I strengthen a deck for kiting?Hi guys,
I am a strapless kiter, I have a kiteboarder version FireWire, but really fancy a non kiting version shape, the jackknife 5'8.
I know the FST construction is the best surfboard construction, just want some ideas/advice on strengthening for kiting. Not after any guarantees and know I will be responsible for breaking it whenever that happens.
I intend to stick a front foot pad on to help, but my questions are; 1 or2 layers of glass or should I use carbon? What type of glass and do I just do a patch where my front foot is or do I carry it all the way back and if so how much wil it effect the flex?
Any and all help/suggestions welcome.
Rapidfire construction for kitingSeen some great photos of Warrick Meyer in SA riding hard on a Rapidfire with a deck pad. I'm not after any guarantees or anything, but how will it hold up to kiting do you think?
Queries on the insert free 5'11Brian/Felix,
Can you share any info on the lighter, insert free 5'11 you are working on. I have the old taj, which I love but always ride strapless. So any info re shape, weight, flex, differences, etc etc so I can decide to delay any board purchase til it's out and when is it due?
