I've known Adrian for many many years and he's an awesome guy to work with and Axis makes incredible boards. All they make are boards, so you know they are going to ride really well. Kitescoop did an interview with Adrian to discuss boards and his history making great boards. http://kitescoop.com/2014/02/24/an-inte ... is-shaper/
He discusses in detail the demise of Underground and the subsequent rise of Axis which is quickly becoming a premier board supplier to the kite industry. Something about those Kiwis.
The Axis lineup up for 2014 is deep and strong. More options to find the right board to suit your style.
This is the 2013 site, but the 2014 will be ready soon.http://axiskiteboarding.com
Enjoy and don't hesitate to contact me for board info and if you want to take one for a spin.
