I would always recommend your first kitesurfing experiance be on a directional. However, if funds are tight & you don't want to have to buy a TT a few months later, then the Curver 184 is an excellent choice.

Just remember - point the nose of the board at the kite to start & bend the back leg - then it's easy!

If the 184 is similar to it´s little brother 164 you´ll love it !! :wink:)
I´ve started kitesurfing this spring and if you´ve ever been on a snow- or wakeboard a TT is the right way to go. If not and you´re a skilled windsurfer, you should give a directional a try! From my experience it will take you around 15 days intensive kiting until you wish to control a smaller board. That´s simply due to the fact that in the beginning you don´t feel comfi with too much kitepower and therefore need an early planing board to cover this "weakness". As soon as you get accustomed to the kite´s power you can make a much smaller board plan very easily. I´ve switched from a F-One TT 180 to the Curver 164 now and feel the Curver to pop on a plane even faster. But don´t skip intro - it´s the way we all have to go for quickest improvement !

Hi there!
a friend of my started his adventure with kitesurfing on CURVER 164 and you will not beleve how fast he became to ride. After about 4 sessions I saw him dancing on the water. So live the directional and try on this TT.

I ask to my instructor if i should buy curver 164 rather than 184 . He told me that 184 is much better for beginner riderss.. How long can i use this board ? Can i make jumps with a 184 board ???
