ok, i guess it is time for me, a guy who owns a 666 132 and a mako wide 150, to chime in here. i also have a nobile shinn 130
i bring both the 666 and the wide to the beach. the 666 will save the day in light wind. it is my flat water/light wind board. for a 132, it kills the light wind. it also kills my knees after a while when it gets choppy but the pop is amazing. i can generally jump higher with the 666 on flat water in light wind. i think the 666 is like a competition board, to keep you in the box by railing upwind and then doing tricks that need a ton of pop.
However, much like my professional male-model career, my PKRA career is also over,,,,, so i will take the High Performance Ultra-User Friendly Mako Wide.
as soon as it gets windy enough, i jump on my mako wide as soon as i can and never look back. i can jump almost as high, actually jumps higher when the water is rougher cause i can edge better. i can ride for hours without getting tired, and it carves and handles the chop so nice. there is no top end on this board.
i could make it work in close to the same light wind as the 666 but it is not quite as efficient for light wind as the 666 is so since i have it with me, i might as well use it. I did buy the 666 quite a while back, before i discovered the best board on the planet, The Mako Wide. i can't sell the 666 for what i paid for it, so i'm going to keep it. it has it's place and uses.
if i had to pick only one board to have, it would be the mako wide, hands down. if i travel and can only bring one board, it will be the new mako wide 140 (which i should have in a couple of weeks). if i didn't have that, then i would bring the 150.
of course, i don't have to pick because i bring both with me.
this year i went on a trip and didn't bring any kite gear. but a gracious friend loaned me a waroo and a mako wide. that mako wide saved the day.
i love that board.
