Sad day to hear LFK is done :(

Never a good feeling to see any company wind up a kite brand.

RIP LFK

Crikey! Their foils seem pretty popular, wonder what's going to happen there?

Is it more a case they are just not making kitesurfing equipment anymore in a saturated market? They seem to do other stuff like wakeboarding etc.

Airrush next?

Some big name pros out there like Brandon Scheid with no company, wonder where they will end up?

Be interesting to see who will swoop in and take over their manufacturing facility etc, lots of infrastructure and networks already setup just waiting to be taken over.

There's a lot of LF kites at my beach - I gather the Wow was a nice wave/freeride kite. I guess that everyone that wanted a better wave kite went for a Reo and everyone that wanted a better freeride kite went for a Neo?

Every long time kiter, should have had at least 1 L.F kite in their career quiver ???? All non L. F. kiters should be DEFUNDED and money raised sent to save L.F. kites ...

A mate got a 2 line liquid force kite when they were new n latest of their kites. Should have got a Slingshot. He never got it!
Crap kites and crap wakeboard's if you compare them too good quality stuff..
I'll never forget my mate going out on his brand new liquid force wakeboard's only too come in with the bottom blank! The transfer's just fell right off! Ha

If I wanted to fly a piece of **** , I'd tie some strings onto a garbage bag ,and that would fly better than any LF kite ever built.

I have a LF Moon Patrol and love it, seems majority of reviews also praise it.

I had a 2017 LF Solo single strut 12m, traded it for something faster turning last year but it served it's purpose, good low end grunt for its size.
