Dear Santa,

Could you design me a proper light wind / racing kite range similar to Edge, VXR V2 or Dyno (13/15/18 for ex.) and at a reasonable cost ?

A 7m Nitro 3 would also be awsome.

A dedicated 17 or 18m light wind kite (like the Turbine/Zephyr etc) is definitely at the top of my list. You guys were testing a single strut prototype a while back right?
Frankly, any item of kite gear with Switch quality and prices sounds good to me: harnesses, boots, boards, wetsuits, you name it. A Switch kite surfboard would be excellent! Yeah it's unrealistic I know, but new boards here are over a thousand minimum, and the secondhand market is pretty much nonexistent.

So I'm assuming that with this 30 day money back guarantee that some kites will be returned. How about offering these used kites first to switch team members so they can build a bigger quiver for demos at a used cheap cheap cost. Method V3 also.

I Love my switch wetty, but really it's too thick for the temps around here, would love a 3x2 steamer exactly the same as the original 4x3....would be stoked :D

a good wakestyle board can be nice : rock solid, round shape (thiner at tips), high rocker (5cm), low or no-fins, maybe channels...

Cause a pure freestyle board (low rocker, wide at tips) is a very good weapon for competition, but less confortable and too much 'back leg ride only' for people who doesn't practise competition

but there are already some good boards on this program on the market (cab custom, tona pop, slingshot

A good angle of attack for low price product is boots: boots are really expensives, few brands on the market and... it isn't as technical as they intends to make us think :lol:
But I think MJ is sponsored with Ronix?
If the SK top rider can't use the switch product on his board, it may be difficult to launch (same reflexion for wetsuits with mystic)

Clothes :

2-3 Different BOARDSHORT (Think to boy and gril living in the sun !)

Board :
4 models

Large school board.
A Firewire/switch surf.. too complicated to buy on firewire website !

Kite :
Product range is perfect, but you could kill market with a foil kite at reasonable price (over 2000eu for a FLysurfer 21m²)

Extend your gear to :
Good Harness at right price (Actual are around .. 150 -180eu for a mystic !)
Inflatable Stand up paddle (Big market into Caribbean !)

In general way, people don't like to have the same product at the same color like their friend, maybe open to different type of colors could be good to attract new buyer, more girl. I think you are doing the change with red element and white nitro 3 ;)

Trainer Kite: How about a foil/trainer with a 3rd line safety? Yes, the three foil kites currently in the line are relatively small, but it's still nice to introduce some type of safety system to beginners from day one.
Thankfully I've only got one Switch kite in my quiver, a 15.5m Helium2. Send a PM if you want to buy it.

Bar [grip] Color: I'm not sure if dropping the red for left color scheme for the new bar was intentional, but you need to correct that. Flipping the bar over is an inconvenient way to correct this issue.
