Brandon just finished up some in depth walkthroughs of our new NV v9 and P1 kites. I wanted to share as they are extremely informative, somewhere between a product brief and a user manual. Some fun material to share around and provide to riders who are interested.
During all this summer, SXM Kiteschool offer kiteboarding lessons for the kids how was staying on Sint Maarten. It was a succes, lot of teenagers discover the activity and few of them start to become confirmed kiteboarder. Spécial thanks to Alexandre & Amélie for the movie.
Liquid Force introduces the new NV V9! Here is the product 2019 clip, take a look.
The 2019 Liquid Force NV v9 Kiteboarding Kite is a three strut all round kite that delivers stability and performance in all conditions and riding styles. In 2019, the NV is in its 9th version with each new iteration bringing...
ECHO SIZES 137 X 42 RIDER WEIGHT 65KG – 85KG ----- 142 X 42.5 RIDER WEIGHT >75KG
From competition to creative free riding Brandon Scheid undeniably is the landlord of the current wakestyle movement. Brandon has been working with master shaper Jimmy Redmon to create a board that will both lock on a slider and deliver explosive pop off the water. The new 2018 Echo exceeds the standard and will take your riding to the next level. New for this year is the addition of the LF Flex Tip technology to the channeled, profile wood core. This allows for the tips to flex deeper on presses without sacrificing the center board stiffness required to generate pop and handle hard landings. The addition of the Liquid Force Grind base adds durability not just for hitting rails and sliders but also for coarse sand launches. All blended with the proven triple concave to fluted channel bottom contour, high rocker and sandwich construction, a recipe for the purest of wake style circles.

What is a RinsKit?
The revolutionary RinseKit is a portable pressurized shower/clean up system that’s like having a hose to go! Just finished your kitesurfing session and want to keep your car or flat clean, Rinskit is the solution.
Why should i get a Rinskit?
Because of the RinseKit’s pressurization system, the water usage is extremely efficient. It allows you to use only the water that you need to rinse gear, pets and people. Water conservation is a huge issue facing us all, so we are hopeful that the RinseKit will help inspire people to be more water wise.
Available at SXM Kiteschool, you can come to test and order your LFK NV.
NV SIZES 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10.5 / 12 / 13.5 / 15 METER
The NV V8 utilizes a new bridle schematic that includes a V load transfer connection. This connection eliminates canopy distortion and creates a more stable bridge of bridle connection points supporting the LE. The NV still retains its legendary stability, its easy to predict on/off feel and bombproof construction, while holding the position as one of the most versatile cross condition and riding style kites on the market. From pro freestyler, to wave seeker, or the weekend warrior, the NV will perform beyond expectations.

During the hurricane Irma, SXM Kiteschool loose the most part of his technical gear. All the boats and van of the school was totally destroyed. That's why in January i decided to go back France to find a new boat then a new van for the school, cause on Sint Maarten, impossible to find it in good conditions.
To bring it to Sint Maarten, we have with my father to bring it first to Le Havre (Normandie). We did it the 30th January. Boat and van leave Le Havre the 3rd February and i receipt it in Sint Maarten with Harry's help at the SAS office of Hope Estate.
Everything was ok and at now i'm so happy to go back on the water with new students for kitesurfing lessons at Cul De Sac Saint Martin French side, at 2 minutes from Orient Bay.
Special thanks to my parents, Label Braise restaurant and Sylvie Troadec for their helps.
