Recently some friends of mine, Laurie and Yuri who run the very popular Our Kite Life Channel on youTube decided to ask a pretty is simple question, “Is the OneWheel better than kiteboarding”? They explored this topic in their latest episode which you can watch above. So I thought I would write this article to answer the question for myself.
The first Torqeedo 1103C Units are starting to be shipped in Europe. It's a little longer before we receive ours but here is a video of what you can expect. They are direct drive and even more quiet than the 1003C model. After the break we have the press release direct from Torqeedo.

We go out of our way to make sure our customers are happy and get the most out of those precious moments on the water .... so we love hearing, and in this case seeing, happy customer stories.

I came across this interesting post (below) in one of the groups I follow on Facebook.
