Re: Begginer strapless surf board - North nugget, airush mini monster or suggestions

Glad I found this thread. I've been kiting for 4 years, just tried strapless this summer on a Shinnster copy that I built and am loving it! I'm also light weight (about 60kg), so the Performer 4'10" seems like a no brainer. Question: Do you ride it with the twin fin setup or have you somehow made i...

Re: Gear that has exceeded your expectations!

Catch Surf Wave Bandit Performer 4-10. At my weight (74 kg / 165 lbs) it's amazing. It's pretty much replaced all my other boards.

If you really want a cheap booster then get a used Ozone Edge or Liquid Force NRG.

Re: Which is the best board you ever own !?

Hands down, not even close, Wave Bandit Performer 4-10 Softtop. This thing shreds so hard I sold both my $800 epoxy boards.

Re: Question from a Noobie

For Belmont you'll be dealing with light winds so I would stay away from 5 strut kites. Best would be one of the modern single strut kites like LF Solo, Airush Ultra, Naish Boxer, North Mono. They are all very user friendly kites. Single struts can also transition well to LW foiling in the future wh...
