Re: FireWire Evo KiteSurfBoard

I just picked up a 5'7 Chumlee in Hteck for a groveller to go with a 5'3 Hteck Evo.
It's much lighter than my 5'3 Hevo, don't think I'll kite it as the Evo goes great in light wind.

Re: Firewire Evo Size Recommendation

I'm 160lbs and kite + paddle surf a 5'3 Evo. If I had my way, I'd have all 3 sizes - such a great board & def my fav FireWire so far.
It's a very fast board, so for fins I recommend def a thruster set up with a balanced ride number in size medium.

I see what you mean but the Vader is still there, you just need to click on "all kiteboards"

Re: Firewire Vader

If I were you Tao,

I'd get either a 5'1 Vader or Evo, you will loose a tiny bit of low end but will gain a heap of performance.

The VG imo, doesn't shine like the other 2 FW boards.

Re: Firewire Vader

I owned the 5'2 VG & 5'2 Nugget at the same time & have not ridden the 5'4 VG. Imo the extra 2" in length or speed generating fins will make little diff in low end. It's the rocker & bottom shape of the nugget that allows it to plane at low speed. The only way to fin out for yourself is to buy the b...

Re: Firewire Vader

Hi Tao, I had the 5'0 & 5'2 Nuggets - all the FW boards VG/VD & Evo have more rocker so won't replace your Nugget for low end - even in the biggest size FW you can get.
Maybe keep your Nugget ?

Re: Firewire Vader

I'll no, your no - that's your opinion Bushy. ;-)
I had a 5'2 VG & was not impressed by its low end & I prefer the Vader & now even more the Evo.
Buy them all (like I did) & decide for yourself.
