Mountainboard Questions

With spring approaching I'm getting really anxious to give the kite a go atop a mountainboard. However, I know next to nothing about mountainboards and which would be the most ideal for use with a kite. I wouldn't mind having a board with a brake attached to use when it's not all that windy out, but is it possible to detach the brake lines so that I wouldn't have to worry about that getting in the way during kiting? If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it.

Landon, I have a MBS Alex Brown board with optional brake system, never really used, except for up and down the driveway, EXACTLY what you need. PM me if interested.

The MBS Pro 6 Alex Brown is the upgraded comp6 board which was a favorite board for young racers and many freestyle kite boarders. This has been tweaked by feedback with Alex to be the ultimate kite freestyle board.

It comes with the Rockstar Pro Aluminium wheels to take maximum side pressure to hold more power. It has the Cam-Lock F3 bindings which fix position and can't be knocked out of setting by board landing up the wrong way. It comes with the Matrix Light trucks and all Stainless Steel Fixings and Bearings.

This board is EVERYTHING a top level kite boarder could want.

Hey Jon, do you still have that mtn board? If so, how much are you selling for?
