Okay, I thought maybe you meant it was 43cm wide. Is the lower wind performance equal to the 165 Mako ? I'm quite interested in a Nomad so thanks much for your input.
I found them roughly equivalent.

Re: nomad TT CARBON WAVES 140X41

Absolutely fantastic TT is waves. I have the non-carbon version ~150x48. I ride surfboards and this TT in the waves, and I am happy to ride either. Toeside/healside on the waves are great, popping over waves is super easy. Mine is large enough to surf the wave with almost no kite power. You cannot ...

What do you think of the pads-footstraps worth buying or just the board?
Never given any footpads much thought, but they work fine.

Re: Shinnster thoughts

I am looking for a fun board to ride in light wind, small surf, and help with strapless footwork. I have read that the shinnster is great in those conditions but conflicting opinions on how good it is for learning strapless footwork. I'm looking at the new 2018 with deckpad and 80mm fins.. How much...

Re: The Most Important Skill To Develop For the Entry & Future Kite Foiler

I would have thought earning good money was the first skill required for foiling.

Re: Foil - wave riding

I agree with you 100%. Video cannot convey the feeling you get from actually riding the wave with a foil without the kites power. I cannot speak for others, but I want to be able to ride the waves like I do on my SUP foilboard, wave power only and kite just drifting. I would also love to be able to...

Re: Foil - wave riding

Those videos are looking really unimpressive. Where is the action and the fun? No cut backs, no splashes, no slashing, no tight turn angles... just riding gently down the line. When I saw the first videos of wave kiting back then, it was the exact opposite! I was stoked and addicted immediately, be...

Re: Foils and board for Downwinders

A lot options for long glides. You need enough speed to catch up to wave but not too much that you simply go blazing down at out of control speeds. I like the naish surf thrust large, the XXLW spitfire and the fanatic aero 1500 (haven't tried the Axis yet). These all work well for downwinders and sw...
