The 6' 6" windsurf version seems to work too.

That is about 30% more expensive than in the US, even if you factor in taxes.
And compared to what you really pay for boards of other brands in a local shop here in Germany, you will come out about 60-70% more expensive than the competition.
Guess it will stay at about 0% market share here.

Euro is strong and we are used to paying more.
I ordered the Vanguard Kite in the 5'2 size. I'm 150lbs (68kgs). After seeing what you posted above, I'm wondering if I should get the 5'0 size instead. I'm mainly using it for small coastal waves and river swell waves (waist to shoulder high waves). I also plan to do some strapless freestyle with it. Can anyone confirm if the 5'0 would be the better choice for my weight and riding type? Felix would you know?sckitesurf wrote:I'm around 165lbs and the 5'0" is my daily ride. I've done the 5'6" (way to much board for my weight), the 5'2" and now the 5'0" and could probably go a tad smaller in high wind.
If you like the Surftech price point (I know I do), try and get a Surftech with the UltraFLX construction. IMO a much better feel than the Tuflites and I picked up a brand new board (no fins) for $299 from Real.Bob Marley wrote:$ 500 is the limit I will spend on a board that will break eventually anyway. Guess I'll stick to surftech. Tuflites are stronger than FireWire anyways.
