Hello

I am beginner and want to buy a twintip. I have AB 2002 (11.:cool:. I weight 95 kg.

I can get a few boards within my budget:
bic airflow 175 2002
brunotti custom 168, model looks much alike the dragon of this year.
wipika olry 175 (has the disadvantage that I have to wait more than 2 weeks for it.
brunotti mirror 180

Any opinions on these boards?
do you know where I can find a test of the Bic? (opinions of shops so far vary from bad to good)
Is the Brunotti custom to small to learn on/ to surf wih less wind?

I would say that out of that list the Olry is well worth the wait.
I wouldn't touch the bics if I were you, & avoid any boards with the footstraps offset to one edge.

i've tried the bic.
it's not that bad, the 2.something meters was way too big, but the 175 is good enough.
just depends what you want to do.
tricks? yes
cruise? yeeeees
wave riding? well, no.
high jumps? mmh. not really.

it's a good board for tt beginner.

I agree with some of the above. The bic is good for schools so you can have a go on a TT & get somewhere. BUT...........would you really want to take it home with you??????

The Olry will seem much smaller & take a little more power to get going, but the rewards will be far greater!

the wipika board will get you going - easy to ride and good board.
i know guys who bought this as their first TT and still keep it for light winds.

another advantage:
you'll have no problem to sell the olry when you switch to another board!

the brunotti mirror's overall impression is quite ok, but i'd prefer the wipika.
