Of course in lakes it's perfect, but if you like speed so much the conditions doesn't matter, or not?
The race board is probably not any faster than your personal twin tip! But if racing UPWIND, you loose by a mile to me. Course racing is all about going upwind. The first racer to the upwind mark wins the race, unless you fall.
Therefore it makes a great light wind board when you are not able to kite because you don't want to WALK back upwind after each run out and back.
I think another real market for this board is the kiter who doesn't own a surfboard because he doesn't live at the beach. This board is fantastic on lakes, and it surfs waves way better than a twin tip. It will make a guy who thinks he's really surfing a wave when he uses his twin tip, feel like Kelly Slater when he surfs a wave on the Race LTD.
The board is just average racing downwind. The board's true thrills are turning 8-12 knots into powered kiting upwind!
It's smooth in rough chop too!
