Today I went out kitesurfing for the first time with my new Firewire waveboard and what should I say. It’s a really nice toy I got here. The board turns so nice & quick on the bottom and top turn. Jibing is really easy because it’s still so stable. It’s upwind skills are really good and it feels solid under your feet on landings. I can just say: Thanks to Tom Hautzel and Firewire Surfboards.
As a kite I used my 10m OZONE REO with 22m lines. This wavekite is so fast and quick for it’s size that I really enjoyed the time riding a big kite together with a waveboard. Actually I was used to waveboards with 7m kites or even smaller ones. But with the REO you can have fun with big kites as well. If you see me on the beach, just ask for a testride.
