The past couple of years I felt like I'd hit my peak in kiting and began to lose motivation as I was no longer progressing in freestyle. This last year I've been "loyal to the foil" and have spent most of my sessions riding a foil board. It's new and exciting for me and doesn't take such a toll on the body like other disciplines in kiteboarding.
As I grow older I realize more and more that I, like many am motivated by progression. The constant engagement in learning something new. Foiling has been amazing as it's a similar feeling to snowboarding or skiing on a deep pow day. You feel as if you are floating. It's a new trend in not only Kiteboarding but many watersports these days and I think it's here to stay.
With foiling being my go-to discipline at the moment I have traded in my 5 line, beast of a C Kite, the Airush Razor for something for suitable and versatile. This is the Airush Kiteboarding ULTRA.
This kite is truly incredible. It's the lightest kite on the market with a single strut. Its wind range is huge and versatile in all conditions. I won't continue preaching about the kite but I do suggest you give one a try.
Also, check out what The Kiteboarder Magazine and their test team had to say about the Airush Ultra V2
