Designer’s Corner: Liquid Force Havoc 2010

We wanted to give one of the best SLE kites ever built a major face lift.

RELENTLESS ROOTS: The Liquid Force Story

When I learned to kiteboard, my first board was a 171 cm Liquid Force Picklefork. It was big, heavy, and had four sharp corners that were always trying to murder you.
