Darren has been into strapless kiteboarding and this is his first custom kiteboard and my first to shape one also. For the most part the guys have been riding standard hpsb but with the standard glassing they aren't upto the rigors. I have made some design and glassing changes for the forces and the torque the shape has to endure.
Going strapless is relatively new sport, it's pretty impresssive. If you haven't seen strapless kiteboarding check out; thedredgezone.com
