Your first impression of Julien Fillion might be that he’s a quiet guy. He always has a thoughtful look on his face, like he’s trying to work out some problem in his head. Get him talking about kiteboarding gear and you’ll quickly realize that not only is Julien not a quiet guy, but his head is so full of ideas that sometimes he has a hard time getting them all out.
Through my site you will be able to follow my path, via a global position system, in the search of epic big wave surfing, kitesurfing, and standup paddling. You will also get sneek peeks of my new designs that I will be testing in the field.
We wanted to give one of the best SLE kites ever built a major face lift. We envisioned the high demand in 2010 for a no-center-strut design, so we redesigned the Havoc on a 4-strut structure, giving room for a much deeper and more powerful profile in the center of the kite where it’s really needed.
I've been really trying to work on my style, cutting out any dingo danglo tricks and pushing more powered and kite low tricks, that i'm going into with a lot more speed. Powering in at the take off just makes landings twice as rewarding and in my opionion give a much more fluid look and feel.
The Envy is a very easy and fast kite to inflate due to the Union single point inflation system and the fact that the Envy is only designed with 3-struts. By taking away the 5th and 4th struts, Liquid Force was able to make a lighter kite.
