I'm more curious as I've been looking at the huge range of board offered by each brand.. and I wondered why so many boards within a brand.. are they that different?
Basically wondering, is there something better suited to me, my conditions and style of riding (as mentioned above)
@tautologies - why would you use something different/what would you recommend?
Oh I did not mean you HAD to get something different. I think the board you have is pretty good. Good allround kiteboard. I meant if you were to get a different board, then get something very different.
When that is said, switching up something increases your learning curve, and you can find new areas of kiteboarding you never knew existed.
I like riding different boards, and use them for different things. My latest purchase was the 4'10'' naish skater. It really feel like riding a skateboard.
Finally, yeah sure there are a lot of heuristics, but it is also important to not get sold on any "rule". ie go with what you feel like. If you ask before getting something I am sure people will chime in. For instance if you said you were going to buy a gun for tiny mushy waves in light wind, I'd say it is probably not the best idea ever, but otherwise NO RULES!!!
