Other uses for LF rocketfish board?

Postby rofer » Sat Jun 25, 2016 7:46 pm

With my LF rocketfish foil in the way I'm wondering what I can do with the board without the foil. There seems to be almost nothing about it online (maybe because it's just released), but from everything I've found it's pretty similar to the kitefish.

It comes with a set of fins, so it can be ridden as a directional, but I've found no one who's seemed to have ridden it this way.

I know several people said the kitefish makes a good light wind kite skimboard (presumably without the fins), but I'm not sure if the extra rocker on the rocketfish will compromise it's light wind performance. I doubt either could work as non-kite skimboards since they seem to be particularly heavy.

Finally, it looks like it's also sold as a wakesurf board, so I guess when the wind really is dead that's still an option.

So, anyone have any suggestions or experiences to share with this board?

I have ridden it in small waves and it works well. Put on the fins and give it a go. Very easy to gybe.
