On a Moon Patrol!

For 2018-2019, the LF Moon Patrol is definitely my twintip board of choice… I love how versatile it is, here’s a quick design brief for this unique kiteboard. 

Reminiscent of your favorite fish shape surfboard or your back country powder stick, the Moon Patrol offers a smooth elongated outline that allows for free flowing turns and high speed cruising. A single tip to tail concave wood core directs water though the fins making for remarkably smooth ride and easy upwind progression. With the option of setting the stance back from center the Moon Patrol will turn big bone jarring chop into launch pads to orbit over the liquid surface. The Moon Patrol comes with optional 5cm fins for the tail configuration for more drive and projection.

Liquid Force NV V9

Myself and the LF team (Brandon Scheid, Jason Slezak) did some magic designing the most amazing kite ever made, literally!  

Redesigned with purpose. The NV Version 9 is just not a new color way or slight change that has no impact on the performance of the kite. We looked at the ways in which the NV has excelled over the past 8 years and then took into consideration what we wanted the kite to do beyond any expectations. No doubt the NV is synonymous with stability and dependability in all conditions and styles of riding. Not only does the new NV V9 embrace its heritage but it now will set a new standard in freestyle kites.
