Yes Wouter - Now I got mine to it looks realy, realy nice, Oh man, what a nice looking board. What do you know, looking out the window the trees (and http://www.windguru.cz) are suggesting 18 knots seabreeze and 25+ Celsius the whole weekend   :wink:  :wink: Now, be careful with the keyboard, I´m the one to hit :wink:

on the water

I was able to try my new mako wide yesterday , 2 hours , wind 18 to 26knots with some higher gusts , kite rise14 , weight 212 .

This board is very easy to get used to , slice through the chop tenderly , i felt like I was on butter. So smooth a ride , easy to jump , very easy to side slip when you want to turn that way. Goes upwind like nothing I had tried yet.

I still have to try it in lighter wind , but I have the feeling for my weight from steady 15 knots with my rise 14 I should be able to ride it. :

I feel like my skill will increase very quickly with this nice toy.  :D

Hey John Z I should slap you up side of the head for making me ride the mako wide with the old stick on pads, finally tried it with the lux pads sooooooooooooooooooo nice, thanks for coming up with something else as the other ones killed me feet and the ones nothing, nothing so amazing, hard to believe that the board could be any better.

Thanks, get rid of the stick on pads and make the lux pads standard on all boards, my opinion.

Kiting is great can’t wait to retire so I can do it full time.  Bring on the wind.

Tried my wide for the first time in medium light wind.  Can’t believe how well this board goes up wind.  I was skeptical, but now realize how great this board is.  It really eats that lake erie chop smile

Jorrit and Janus. Sorry for the delays man. I was first told it would be in the Netherlands in the 3rd week of may. 3x delayed I have no idea why…... All I know is that it is for sure on its way now and the shipping list also mention the specifick colours that you guys requested. Other people seemed to have gotten their boards with new pads 2 weeks ago….. Strange!

I don’t care about my own board but do care about those of my customers.

Wouter don’t worry, it’s ok… though I can use a Go Jo and a repairset for my Pyro Pro..  wink
I hope that OR will solve the delivery problem(s) with the new distribution centre.
I also hope that the expression that “all good things come slowly” counts for the Wide.

Regards,
Arjan

Arjan, Wouter is the man and I am to blame for his lack of proper answers. We have been working to open a new warehouse in Holland that was to have been open for May 1 but which took us longer than expected to get properly stocked. As such I had been hoping to send Wouter his boards through the new warehouse and ended up giving up and sent them from here, weeks later than they should have shipped. 100% my fault to have built up false expectations.

The good news is that the Holland warehouse is actually stoked and functional now! Go ahead and test me! Order something! smile

Jason, the new pads and straps are standard on all 2008 boards shipping from our warehouse now. They are available for re-fit for our early purchasers of 2008 boards. Available as well for straight up purchase to use with any other board and will be included on all 2009 boards as well! Well worth the wait!

(Imagine how tough life was for me, I had the opportunity to use them over Christmas and then needed to give them back! So I knew what I was missing while we waited for them to arrive! Tough life, I know!)
