I read the title of this thread and knew it was you, Mark!

They do go upwind better in less wind, but they still have all the handling and speed problems of surfboards.
I have trouble accepting the quote above about raceboards not providing more bottom end
and having the same handling and speed problems of surfboards.
Raceboards are not surfboards, right?
I mean, they are designed to perform better in lighter winds and are faster than surfboards.

I would imagine if one could not 'comfortably' keep the kite in the air, there is no fun to be had...on any board.
I have heard that Airush may have made the statement -
"If you can put a kite in the air, you can get out on a Sector 60"
Hopefully, I'll get to test that this month.
