Split Board For Wave Riding?

Postby Beachboy » Thu Nov 12, 2015 12:03 pm

I have been jealously looking at the photos of kiters packing their split boards into normal looking roller travel bags. No More "Golf Bag" games and WTF looks from taxi and bus drivers. Seems to me like all around much less hassle. Weigh the bag... finished. The problem is that I really love to ride waves. If I could get a good hybrid board, like a small OR Mako, that has good wave credentials and splits... wow... the holy grail!! DO any of the current crop of split boards perform well in the waves?

Sorry, I should have explained that I was looking for something smaller like 140 centimeters or less to facilitate standard luggage. Thank you.

I bought the newind 3 parts split board

http://www.newind.net/splitboard/

pros: nice ride feeling.
cons: it is a big heavy, many screws.

mine has also the holes for a hydrofoil in case I need it later.

that board, plus 2 kites, bar, harness, neoprene, and small pieces fit perfectly in a 80x44x30 luggage.
