I need a new wave board I think I have it dialed down to either the 5'8" naish global or the sling shot celeritas.
I ride strapped and still like to jump the boards on the way back out to the line up, so I need durability besides a good riding board. Been surfing for a long time, been kiting for about 10 years.
Any input would be appreciated.
Well, I got the 5'8'' global. For that same reason, powered riding and jumping. I think the global is super strong. In addition to the regular extras that kiteboards usually have, they added a layer of pvc under. That makes the board super strong. Though I am sure it is possible to break just about anything, mine held up last year. Though it is just an extra, I do like the fact that it has 5 fin boxes and a nice day bag
The celeritas I think is quite a bit wider than the globals. If you want a wider board the skater line from naish might be more comparable...of course I might be wrong on the celeritas.
