Just wanted to give you guys some feedback on the Circle One 5”8 Kitesurf board. I got it through Lawrence Smith at Ocean High down in Marazion Cornwall as I teach kiting for him down there. I previously had boards made by the kite company I ride (slingshot) and a UK company called Lost Cause. I must say I am so stoked with the board. Its definitely the smoothest kite-‘surf’ board I have ridden, and I’ve been using directional boards almost exclusively for about 4-5 years. It is super snappy off the top of the wave and has great pop for strapless aerials. The board is also receiving a lot of interest with other kiters in the area as for the money it is great value! My other half is also loving the board for learning to ride a surf board with, and has gone from strapped and not really gybing in flatter conditions to gybing strapless in reasonably challenging stuff!
