Peter Lynn Venom IIs and Caution Answers are here!
The new ‘06 Caution Answer is here and it has far more of a C-shape LEI feel that will be an easy transition for standard C-shape kite users. Typical great build quality, great turning, and good grunt through turns.

It is an exciting time in kitesurfing. Lots of new designs out there, and we are testing as many as we can. The new PL vortex looks nice in its role as a Bomba replacement and quick turning kite.

The kiteforum and other groups are saying great things on their tests of this particular kite. The new ‘06 Cautions are here with improvements in every area. This says a lot as we really liked last years’ versions. Underground has a full line of directional wave boards with stainless inserts and great construction. Stay tuned for the latest reviews and updates on new kite gear to come very soon!
